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as we reach the more or less half way point of the season, the early confidence of four wins on the trot have been replaced by a more grounded and realistic mindset.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
I have a confession to make: I don’t like architects. Well, when I say architects, if I really thought about it long enough and rationalised the situation I wouldn’t mean all architects. I’m sure many, if not most are very nice people much thought of by their loved ones. In fact, my butty is an...

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...

A life watching rugby – one woman’s view
Lynn Glaister | 03 November 2016
It can seem like Rugby is a man’s world but women do have a place in rugby, as players, supporters and administrators to name just a few ways to be involved.  You can also become involved in supporter’s organisations and that it why I joined the CF10 Arms Park Trust.

Huw Jones | 01 November 2016
Huw explains why we need bodies like CF10 Arms Park Trust who will represent supporters and not be afraid to criticise and hold people to account when necessary.

Both beaten the All Blacks but both beaten by the Schedule
Martin Hughes | 26 October 2016
So, our second Welsh derby is nearly upon us, an East v West meeting, a rugby challenge that should ensure a ripple or two of excitement. In theory vast hordes from the west will once again pile into the Arms Park with their songs about their players, that charming little ditty about a small...

Supper or Tea .. a question of timing
Martin Hughes | 14 October 2016
Entering Cardiff Arms Park I find “Will I be home in time for supper Dad?” as ubiquitous a question as “Is Sam playing Dad?” Rugby in Wales and elsewhere is subjected to a plethora of kick off times usually at the behest of the television companies. The necessary money these companies bring to the...

What have the Cardiff Blues ever done for us?
Martin Hughes | 04 October 2016
Cardiff is a political, geographic and economic capital. It is increasingly assuming the role that other major cities across Europe play and beginning to achieve a prominence unheard of since the coal boom (when, of course, it purloined the valleys’ coal, abused its female population, and ate...

Many fans that support Cardiff rugby believe that the voice of supporters isn't properly represented at board level and feel disconnected from our club as a result. When big decisions are being made about our club, as they are now, we...

The Arms Park is overshadowed by the monstrous Principality Stadium, a ubiquitous Holiday Inn and the Westgate Street flats. The ground is hidden in the dip between two centuries worth of architectural development and the River Taff, with the fine Gwyn Nicholls’ gates at the Angel Hotel entrance...
