Rush returns to squad for Tigers clash.

27th October 2006

Xavier Rush replaces Ben White on the bench for the Sunday’s Heineken Cup clash against Leicester Tigers in the only change to the team that beat Bourgoin in the first round match last Saturday.

Robert Sidoli, Tom Shanklin and Ben Blair have recovered from minor bumps and bruises for the match that will be played in front of at least 20,000 supporters. The match has caught the imagination of Cardiff Blues supporters who have already purchased over 17,000 tickets for the game. Supporters without tickets are encouraged to purchase tickets beforehand or to buy them early on Sunday.

The Cardiff Blues ticket office will be open from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Saturday and there will be a marquee open at Gate 3 in the Millennium Stadium selling tickets on Sunday from 12.00. Supporters who have purchased tickets but need to collect them should do so from the ticket office opposite the Angel Hotel. Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the Cardiff Blues Ticket Office on 029 2030 2030
