Halaholo hails "special" Cardiff Arms Park atmosphere

27th March 2018

Willis Halaholo has praised the "special" Cardiff Arms Park atmosphere, following Cardiff Blues' Guinness PRO14 victory over Ulster Rugby on Saturday.

The centre played a key role for Wales’ Capital Region, with his carry and offload eventually opening the space for Blaine Scully to cross for the second try of the afternoon.

Halaholo, who recently returned from a knee injury, believes the momentum from recent matches will be invaluable heading into Saturday’s Challenge Cup quarter final clash against Edinburgh.

“It’s pretty special. I said it after one of the wins we had here before my operation that it’s starting to feel like home here at the Arms Park,” said the former Super Rugby winner.

“I’m really enjoying being here and getting amongst the fans and supporters.

“I thought the boys rose to the occasion, we’ve been building a bit of momentum over the last few games and we showed what we’re capable of with a good performance and win.

“We’re just focusing on ourselves, we enjoyed the win over Ulster, but now we look at Edinburgh ready for Saturday.

“We will just take the momentum into this next game and try to rise to the occasion again. 

“Hopefully the boys get up again, we will train hard and prepare well for a big occasion, a big quarter-final with Edinburgh. They are going pretty good at the moment but we’ll be ready.

 “We’re starting to know each other’s traits and what we can do, we just try to play off that and it’s starting to come off, which is huge going into the next part of the season.”
