A Few Words From A Critical Friend
Steve Coombs | 10 April 2022
CF10’s position has always been that it wishes to be seen as a “critical friend” by the club. Criticising when necessary and telling home truths when the club needs to be told some home truths. Because we want the club to succeed. Our criticism comes from a place of love. This intention needs to...

The Roaring Twenties (2)
Steve Coombs | 25 July 2021
It’s part of the function of time that heroes become slowly forgotten. Memories erode. Great feats are surpassed. Players who would have been household names and beloved by the supporters who packed CAP’s terraces are now largely forgotten. A necessary function of time but nonetheless tragic.

The Roaring Twenties (1)
Steve Coombs | 24 July 2021
A long period where rugby had been disrupted. The aftermath of a global pandemic. The unresolved issue of the club’s long term future at Cardiff Arms Park. The strange situation where for a time two XVs had been branded as the first team of Cardiff Rugby.

Supporter Directors: Time to embrace the passion?
Simon Jones | 08 July 2021
