Cardiff - Cardiff Blues' South Africa-born captain Andries Pretorius has reiterated his desire to play for Wales.

Pretorius, 27, is now eligible to play for the Dragons after completing the required three-year residency on December 1, 2012.

Pretorius joined the Blues in 2009 and was appointed the region's skipper ahead of the 2012/13 season following the departure of New Zealander Paul Tito.

"When I came over to the Blues form Gloucester three years ago I said I've got ambitions to play for Wales and that hasn't changed," Pretorius added.

"But I also knew I had to perform well for the Blues to be even able to get anywhere. My main focus is playing well for the Blues.

"I've got one job to do and that's for the Blues and that's what my focus is on."

Pretorius stands six-foot-four and was born in Nelspruit.
