The 23-year-old starred throughout Wales’ march to Grand Slam glory and bagged three tries in the process including stunning efforts against England and Scotland.

He has subsequently been nominated for player of the tournament and he will return to Wales in the summer to ply his trade at Cardiff Arms Park.

“It is great to be returning to Wales and I cannot wait to link up with Cardiff Blues next season.” Adams said on the move

“I’ve been really impressed with John’s vision for the future and the attacking brand of rugby the Blues play will really suit my game.

“It is a young and exciting squad, with a good blend of experience, which has a bright future and I’m looking forward to contributing towards that.

“I will always be grateful to Worcester Warriors for giving me the opportunity to become a professional player and I have loved my time at Sixways.

“But to play for Wales I need to play in Wales and Cardiff Blues is the best fit for me. I’m really looking forward to the next chapter at Cardiff Arms Park.”

Adams burst onto the scene at Worcester Warriors during the 2016-17 season and has now made 59 appearances and scored a hugely impressive 34 tries.

He was the Aviva Premiership’s joint-top scorer last season with 13 tries and 17 in all competitions and scooped both the Warriors’ Young Player and Player of the Year awards.
