Cardiff Blues Training Around the Region

25th June 2007

The Cardiff Blues are back in training and as a part of their pre season schedule the Blues are taking two training sessions on the road.

Coaching team David Young, Robert Howley, Trystan Bevan and Dan Baugh will take sessions with the whole squad at Llanharan RFC on Monday the 2nd of July and at Taffs Well RFC on Monday the 9th of July.

The squad will be training from 6.30pm to 7.30pm and the session is open to anyone to come to watch their regional team be put through their paces.

Following the training session the squad will spend time meeting the fans and signing autographs

This will be the first time for supporters to get the chance to see new signings Paul Tito, Jason Spice and Richie Rees train with the Blues following their recruitment over the summer.

Speaking ahead of the sessions, Cardiff Blues Director of Coaching David Young said,

“We’ve taken huge strides over recent seasons in attracting fans from throughout the region and these events are a great way for us to go out and meet the supporters.”

“Whenever we’ve gone out to the local clubs we’ve always received a warm welcome and it’s nice for the players to have a change of scene with the training sessions.”

Richard Hodges, Blues Community & Coach Development Manager added:

“This is a great opportunity for fans to meet the players and to watch how professional coaches and players run a training session.”

“Supporters from throughout the region can look forward to a number of events that the Blues will be attending over the summer.”

“We will be attending Parti Ponty, The Tesco Kids Festival in Cardiff and also the Royal Welsh in July.”

“The Future Blues coaching camps have also proved to be very successful and will be starting again in Cardiff and Aberfan during the summer holidays.”

“Youngsters can look forward to being coached by our Development Officers as well first team players such as Nicky Robinson and Xavier Rush.”
