A new dawn, or a false dawn?
CF10 Rugby Trust | 21 May 2018
Well, what a season 2017-8 turned out to be. Surely none of us would have predicted a second Challenge Cup win and a return to the Champions Cup on the back of our losses to Edinburgh, Leinster, Glasgow and Munster last September. Danny and the squad have worked miracles, the growing culture within...

CF10 Rugby Trust | 16 May 2018
Amidst the jubilation of Cardiff Blues winning a second European Challenge Cup on Friday night, Cardiff RFC's season also came to an end on the weekend, albeit in slightly less glamorous circumstances. Indeed, the 17-20 loss to Ebbw Vale at the Arms Park on Saturday sort of summed up the Blue...

In over 140 years of Cardiff Rugby there has been plenty of memorable moments, from wins over international touring sides, to Welsh Cup and merit table triumphs, and the sheer amount of British and Irish Lions squad members provided. Since 1995 brought professionalism to rugby union though, many...

We're doomed!
CF10 Rugby Trust | 11 February 2018
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 2018
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...

500 and climbing...
CF10 Rugby Trust | 29 December 2017
One of our Twitter detractors recently suggested that CF10 was so small and irrelevant the members could meet in a phone-box. Well, that phone-box has just got a lot bigger; our membership has just gone over the 500 mark. That’s fantastic news, because it means that over 500 people are committed...
