Cardiff Blues confirm home opener at Rodney Parade

First Team News | 26th September 2020

Cardiff Blues can confirm their Guinness PRO14 clash against Connacht will be staged at Rodney Parade on October 10.

It had been hoped Wales’ Capital Region would be able to host their opening home encounter at Cardiff Arms Park, however testing on the artificial surface has revealed damage that will require repair work.

Further investigation is currently being undertaken to confirm the extent of works required following the supporting role played in the Dragon’s Heart Hospital.

The iconic ground became part of the fight against Covid-19 in March, with Cardiff and Vale University Health Board decommissioning the site earlier this month.
