I'm mainly surprised by the timing, and how abrupt this has been... is there a reason for that, beyond results?

Maybe they are hoping a change in coach will mean results improve & give themselves the best possible chance of qualifying for next seasons HC & therefore more income?

Maybe - but it'd be a long shot, if so!

Cardiff for the capital region are a complete shambles and have been for years. They go from coach to coach and make the same mistakes every time, hardly ever having a pack that can compete.
The disagreements they have with the athletic club are an embarrassment and so unprofessional.
Perhaps itโ€™s time for the WRU to Merge them with there own region the Dragons.

Canโ€™t see Ulster releasing Peel before the end of the season especially when there is a possibility of  silver ware at the moment. The game this weekend against Leinster will be a key match. The way the ERC is set up this year it is unlikelyUlster will qualify for the championship cup but theChallenge Cup is still a realistic Target. Dwayne Peel is going to go to Cardiff but it is with regret that Ulster are losing him.
He is an excellent attack coach but I am not sure how he would make out as a Head Coach but having worked under Dan McFarland would certainly give a good target to follow.

He was an accident waiting to happen and he knew his time was up once Dwayne was appointed. Ok Blues now have a good young Welsh coach; what are the odds on Stevo being the next young Welsh regional head coach. 

I think RP knew that Peel would be head coach there, for all we know RP has done all his coaching badges and could be going there in a player coach role being Peels assistant attack/backs coach.

With a good forwards coach the blues could be the team to watch in a few years time with them in place. Theyโ€™ve got quality there just donโ€™t seem to use it.

Yes they are always talked of as having a weak front 5 but with guys like Arhip, Dillon Lewis, Dacey, Carre, Thyer & Domachowski in the front row & Seb, Cory Hill, Turnbull & Thornton in the 2nd row they are no mugs. Indeed we have never managed to roll them over up front. 
The trouble is they keep playing Scott Andrews LOL

Dai Young confirmed as interim Director of Rugby at Cardiff Blues, with the intention of making it a permanent appointment.

He'll have a watching brief against Scarlets this weekend before taking the reins from next week. Will undoubtedly give the club a boost ahead of the final seasonal derby. Jarrod Evans back fit, but Navidi & Ellis Jenkins not yet ready to play, & Garyn Smith out for 5-6 months.

Confirmation of what  his appearance has suggested for a long while,that Dai Young is still nourished by Pies.

The Blues Head coach role has had the sword of Damocles hanging over it from Day 1 over the last 15 years. Up the there with being Kim Jong Il's Chief of the military in terms of life expectancy.

Perennial underachievers due to, predominantly, a whole host of off field antics around ground, funding, ownership etc.

A Young/Peel ticket is pretty exciting in principal โ€ฆI just really hope they asked for (and got) a clear road map of how the funding will be made available to re-build what is a pretty aging and under delivering team in some areas. Harsh I know...but with Arhip, Dacey, Turnbull, Lloyd W, Lee-Lo, Halaholo, Gill and others in their thirties years (but still very much 1st choice 23 players), it's going to take some money.

They can build a decent squad quite quickly around the likes of Adams, Amos, Hill, Botham, Lewis-Hughes, Lane and hopefully Ellis Jenks etc...but there's a paucity of front 5 options of course...no disrespect meant but if you have the likes of Gill, Scott Andrews and guys like Tovey as your first choice subs you can get exposed.

I think Wales rugby needs a strong Blues component mind.
