It’s Throwback Thursday!
David Allen | 03 March 2017
Thomas Rhymer was a 13th century Scottish laird who, after supposedly being carried off by elves, returned with the gift of prophecy. As far as I’m aware, there’s no genetic link, but in 2004, Thomas Gerald Reames Davies, a total gentleman, possibly the greatest rugby player that I’ve had the...

CF10 recently decided to utilise some of its income from membership fees to purchase shares in Cardiff Blues Limited. The number of shares is small, but the step that the trust has taken in making this purchase is big.

Like Bloody Buses!
David Allen | 25 January 2017
Surveys for fans of Cardiff Blues are like the proverbial Cardiff bus. You wait an absolute age for one to come along, often they never arrive, and then two appear at once. Cardiff Blues Ltd. don’t have a great record of seeking the views of those who pay money to pass through the turnstiles, and...

A Design For Life
David Allen | 02 January 2017
Libraries Gave Us Power I recently borrowed a copy of the above book from Kairdiff Central Library and very much looked forward to reading about the many triumphs of the Scarlets since their inception in 2003. On collecting it, my initial reaction was one of surprise given the size and thickness...

Freefall or Rollercoasting?
Martin Hughes | 15 December 2016
It is inevitable as we reach the more or less half way point of the season, the early confidence of four wins on the trot have been replaced by a more grounded and realistic mindset. Being honest few expected Cardiff to reach Christmas unbeaten bestriding the rugby universe like a team of Blue...

A Team
CF10 Rugby Trust | 23 November 2016
Now, as good of a second row as Mr T may be, this isn't about the fictional US Special Forces unit. It's about what I see as the missing piece of the regional development pathway puzzle and how we can solve it to maximise potential for young players to make it in the first team. Over the last few...

What Can Architects Learn From The Green Bay Packers?
Huw Jones | 16 November 2016

Bridging Gatland's Poor Law
Martin Hughes | 09 November 2016
We again stand on the verge of the Autumnal series (what I lovingly called back in the days of Roger Lewis as The Blitz on the Debt Series) and look to the National team to give us an outlet for our patriotic leanings and to entertain with feats of bravery and daring-do. Thousands will descend on...
