Blues squad to face Ulster announced

11th September 2008

David Young has named the following 22 for Friday night’s match against Ulster.

Speaking ahead of the match Young said, “I’ve no doubt it will be another difficult game for us against quality opposition. Ulster are an improving team and a hungry team. The Scarlets went over to Belfast last week and won, so I’m sure they will come over to Cardiff breathing fire. They have a lot of quality players in key positions and also won the League in 2006. They will also be a lot fresher than us, having only played one match, but I’m not offering that as an excuse.”
“We were all very disappointed after our last two games, but there were some positives from both matches. We did a lot of things to put us in a position to dominate the game and win the territory but we know we have to be far more clinical to win these types of games.”
“We have to show a bit of character in Friday’s match, but equally importantly, we have to show purpose in the way we play. Home games are paramount to us and we have to make sure we get the right result.”
