We're doomed!
CF10 Rugby Trust | 11 February
Last week’s events at Cardiff Arms Park were just the latest instalment in a narrative that would appear to see two organisations incapable of agreeing something that they both want to achieve. We’ve deliberately taken some time out to consider the situation rather than rush into an emotional...

Losing that loving feeling?
Martin Hughes | 31 January
The Six Nations build up has started. Super ‘slow-mo’ montages, hammed up narration over a Hans Zimmer soundtrack, fierce debate over which player will hold the tackle bag the longest and of course the ubiquitous spate of injuries all add to the rainbow cocktail that is the world’s oldest...

Dan Pearce | 17 January
Another famous European night at the Cardiff Arms Park on Sunday saw Cardiff Blues complete the double over Toulouse and secure top spot in the Challenge Cup's pool two ahead of the final round of fixtures this weekend. Despite a particularly non-family friendly kick-off time of 17:30 on a...

Preview: Cardiff Blues v Toulouse
Dan Pearce | 13 January
It may be in European rugby's second tier competition, and it may be on a Sunday evening at 5.30pm, but make no mistake about it, this edition of Cardiff Blues v Toulouse is still a massive occasion. We are now at the business end of the Challenge Cup pool stages, and Cardiff Blues currently sit...

Ospreys 29-28 Cardiff Blues
Dan Pearce | 08 January
It was a disappointing end to a run of three straight Welsh derbies for Cardiff Blues as they suffered a narrow defeat to the Ospreys, extending a run of defeats at the Liberty Stadium that stretches back to 2005. Danny Wilson had named a strong starting XV for the first game of 2018, recalling...

To Affinity...and a triangulation of expentancy
Martin Hughes | 07 January
Imagine Wales having four professional rugby sides .... we do? OK, but imagine one in the east called Dragons (tick) one in the south called Blues (not quite), one in the north called North Wales Bay Buccaneers (a cool half a million already) and one in the west called Scarlet Ospreylian Wizards (...

In CF10 We Trust
Simon Jones | 05 January
When I first became involved with the CF10 Trust it was during the euphoric days of the start of last season. Cardiff Blues had won three on the bounce and looked set fair to have the season we all believed they were capable of. My main concerns were around the challenge of setting up a supporters...

Cardiff Blues 11-14 Scarlets
Dan Pearce | 02 January
Cardiff Blues finished 2017 as they ended, with a loss against West Wales rivals Scarlets. In front of a sell-out Arms Park it was a disappointing finish to the year after dominating large parts of the game. Danny Wilson had been able to welcome back a number of players from the treatment room,...
