Just an aside to the name change from Cardiff Blues to Cardiff !! This surely means that Dwayne is out of contract as he signed for the Cardiff Blues who will no longer exist !! Croeso gartref Dwayne !!

I would assume it is a rebranding exercise as opposed to a change in the legal entity.

I don't see this rebranding changing anything to be honest. 

Dale mackintosh's stat about the amount of their players that come from the Valleys (largely ponty) was interesting, I guessed from scanning their squad it was high but I didn't realise it was that high. 


Didn’t they win the challenge cup?


Yes, a Tier 2 event though. Going one step further than the mighty Caerphilly did in the same comp.

I feel the point is valid though. Cardiff have had more than their fare share of off field wrangles, venue confusion, funding nonsense, coaching changes etc.
Perpetually impacting their on field impact.

Oh yeh I remember. So going by that rationale if the Scarlets ever won it it’s not something to brag about.

Anyone else think the blues are on the brink of going under again?
With the re-branding and them being the only region to be vocal on how they are going to struggle with the terms of the loan?
Is there something bigger going on behind closed doors?

Why is support from outside cardiff at only 17% of their total? Sounds like a lot more could have been done there to net more people across a pretty big region

Throw in the Peel saga as well. 
There’s got to be more to it all then is being let out of the arms park.

Their crowds have been poor for a long time, way before lockdown. Theres always been a complex relationship with the athletic club too over rent. Whatever happened to the proposed redevelopment of the arms park too? wasnt a hotel and convention centre due on that land?  They must be desperate for a slice of this new tv money deal off the wru

I don’t think any Welsh professional team can be accused of consistently achieving what they’re able to, but in my opinion Cardiff are the biggest underachievers of the 4.

I think it was the third tier competition Caerphilly reached the final of, not the old Parker Pen.

We’re a club and a ‘region’. They’re no different to us. Why they’ve chosen to market themselves as “The Blues” over the last 17 years when they’ve got one of the most illustrious histories in club rugby has been bemusing.

You are right.

The best worst team in the Northern Hemisphere Cup.

Sorry but if the scarlets were to win the challenge cup it would be hugely celebrated on here & rightly so.

We'd have to be in it to win it over the last 15 years.

There wasn’t a 3rd tier event in 2019?

Can’t recall when they stopped. Around 2006 I thought.
