Blues name side to face Gloucester

16th August 2012

Cardiff Blues have named their team for the match against Gloucester on Saturday in their third pre-season friendly match

Having beaten Toyota Free State Cheetahs at the beginning of August the Blues narrowly lost to Worcester Warriors last Saturday in their only home friendly match. The Blues will be looking to make amends when they take on Gloucester in Kingsholm on Saturday at 3.00pm.

As in the first two warm up games Phil Davies has selected a first half and second half team giving everyone the opportunity to play ahead of the opening league fixture. The Blues welcome back Harry Robinson and Lloyd Williams who will feature for the first time since returning from Australia with Wales.
