Dan Pearce | 28 July
The 2018/19 season will see some big changes across Welsh domestic rugby, specifically around the development pathway amid the creation of new U23 professional sides and a shake-up of the Principality Premiership.

CF10 Rugby Trust | 04 June
As of this summer, Scrum V as we currently know it will be no more. 'Rejoice!' you might say, for the old boys club on a Sunday night has finally shut its doors. 'Disaster!' others say, for free to air television coverage is all but lost for the Guinness Pro14. Little known subscription channel...

A new dawn, or a false dawn?
CF10 Rugby Trust | 21 May
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.

Dan Pearce | 30 April
Cardiff Blues suffered a first 'home' loss since New Year's Eve on Saturday, as a much-changed side fell to a strong Ospreys outfit thanks to a late Dan Biggar drop goal at Judgement Day. Of course, with the game being staged next door at the Principality Stadium it wasn't really a home fixture...
