Blues select twenty two for Sunday's crunch match

18th January 2008

Cardiff Blues have named the following team to face Bristol in the Heineken Cup decider on Sunday.

Speaking ahead of the match Cardiff Blues Director of Rugby, David Young said,
“Bristol have to go into this game as favourites, they don’t lose in the Memorial Ground often.”
“We know how difficult they are to beat at home but we have to go there to do a job, and know that if we can get the result we are through to the quarter final, which is a big statement for us to make.”

Despite returning to training this week, Tom James has not recovered sufficiently from a throat infection to be considered for Sunday’s match.
