Boss urges team to keep aiming high

26th March 2016

Danny Wilson vowed his Cardiff Blues would keep taking each game as it comes after a thumping victory over Benetton Treviso - but admitted dreams of a top six finish were still very much alive.

Cardiff Blues ran in six second half tries to overwhelm the Italians at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park on Friday night.

Wilson’s team can now look forward to three successive Welsh derbies that culminate with Judgement Day IV at the Principality Stadium.

And the Head Coach admitted it was all to play for after another outstanding home performance.

“Our objective is to get in that top six and we still have a sniff,” he said. “After today we jump into seventh, depending on how results go this weekend we will see where we are.

“From where the season started to where it is going now, we have momentum and are going into a series of games that we will want to win to give us a top six finish.

“We picked a team tonight to face this opposition. Depending on who we play we can pick different combinations and styles of play. Against Treviso it was about picking an athletic team to get around the field and it worked.

“It’s an exciting time with the derbies coming up,” he added. “It’s the games we all want to be involved in and the ones that attract the big crowds.

“It would be fantastic for us to do the double over the Scarlets, but I am under no illusions how difficult it is to go to Parc y Scarlets having been there as a home coach and knowing how passionate they are. However, we go with form and confidence.

“We will take each games as it comes starting with the Scarlets. If we get a win there it gives us a massive opportunity.”
