A welcome distraction from Guinness Pro12 woes comes for Cardiff Blues this weekend as the team head south to the foot of the Pyrenees to take on Pau in the Challenge Cup. With just two games to go in the pool stage, Danny Wilson's men still have it all to play for. At this point the equation is...

The second of the Welsh festive derbies takes place on New Year's Day as Cardiff Blues travel down the M4 into Carmarthenshire and to Parc y Scarlets for the game with Llanelli. On the back of a Boxing Day win over Newport there's sure to be a burgeoning confidence in the camp, but I'm sure the...

Cardiff 27-16 Newport

Cardiff Blues secured a fairly comfortable Boxing Day victory over Newport Gwent Dragons at the Arms Park in a game that promised so much, but ended up delivering so little. Nevertheless, a first Pro12 win at home since September was a welcome sign after a dodgy few months of league form. Head...
