Tito, was out of contract at the end of the 2007 Super 14 and bolstered the Cardiff Blues squad following that year's World Cup. On arrival in the Welsh capital he was given the job of turning the Blues failing line out around which he did with ease. He was appointed captain the following season replacing Xavier Rush who had stood down from the role. In his first season as captain he steered the region to the EDF Energy Cup Final, beating Gloucester Rugby by 50–12 on 18 April 2009 and he won the Man of the Match award for his efforts.
After a season full with injuries, Tito decided to retire at the end of the 2011/12 season.
