WE’VE GOT THE BLUES
Don’t miss a beat of the action in the heart of the Welsh capital with Season Memberships at Cardiff Blues now on sale.
The Blues have enjoyed another season of sensational support at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park where they’ve won eight of our 10 Guinness PRO12 home matches.
Danny Wilson’s men have restored pride in the Cardiff Blues jersey with a surge up the table and a number of Welsh derby victories – including a double over both the Scarlets and Newport Gwent Dragons.
Several new faces have already signed up for our next assault on the PRO12 and Europe with Nick Williams, Matthew Morgan, Rhys Gill, Steve Shingler, George Earle, Kirby Myhill and Willis Halaholo all arriving in the coming months. And Wales captain Sam Warburton has high hopes for region’s future and believes the good times are on their way back to BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park.
The Cardiff Blues star said: “This year has got a completely different feel around it in the sense that we’ve actually got something really exciting to play for.
“If we managed to achieve the sixth spot, we would be celebrating as if we have done something a lot better than that considering where we’ve come from at the start of the season, with a difficult away fixture list and how we’ve managed to crawl our way back up the league.
“All the players are starting to understand our style of play now and it’s really gelling in. There’s still a long way to go, all the players and coaches will say that. But we are definitely on the right path and I’m really enjoying my rugby at the Blues.
“Going back to when I came through, along with Jamie Roberts and Leigh Halfpenny, we came into a team that was full of stars and making semi-finals of Europe.
“Quarter-final of the Heineken Cup was just a standard, it was just normal. I think players have almost forgotten just what a big club the Blues actually are, with us having been underachieving.
“Everyone is on the same path now to try and get some success. The goal for the next two or three years is to really kick on and start challenging for things.”
Season Memberships for the 2016/17 campaign start at just £50 for under-16s and £190 for adults.
