Blues Feature in Blue Peter Special

27th February 2006

A special half hour episode of Blue Peter will be broadcast on Wednesday to celebrate St David’s day and Cardiff Blues will feature very prominently.

Cardiff boy, Gethin Jones joined us last month to train with the first team where he was put through his paces playing scrum half with the squad and practicing his tackling on Jonah Lomu – you can guess who came out of it the worst..

He later had some kicking practice with Lee Thomas and Nick Macleod before helping out as a ball boy in the match against Edinburgh.

Gethin seemed to enjoy himself, saying:
“It was hard work training with the boys but I really enjoyed myself. I was a dream come true really as I’ve always used to come down to the Arms Park to support the team when I was growing up in Cardiff."
