See the Blues Train Tonight at Taffs Well

9th July 2007

Cardiff Blues fans have the opportunity to watch the first team squad train tonight (Monday) at Taffs Well RFC from 6.30pm.

In the second and final 'open' training session for the summer David Young and his squad, inlcuding the new summer recruits, will visit Taffs Well.

Rob Howley, Trystan Bevan and Dan Baugh will put the squad through their paces with a number of different drills and there will be a chance for supporters to get autographs and chat to their favourite players.

Held at Llanharan RFC last Monday, the first of these events was a great success, with fans enjoying the chance to see new signings, young stars and fans' favourites up close.

Speaking after the session New Zealand lock Tito was obviously glad to have finally arrived in Wales.

“I’ve talked to Xavier Rush and Jason Spice about Welsh rugby and I’ve also been watching the Blues play on the rugby channel back in New Zealand.”

“From what I saw at the end of last season they are getting more and more expansive. That’s good because that suits my game."

"I felt I played the best rugby of my life in the Super 14 last season, but this is a different scene for me and I hope it will help make me a better player.”

“I just want to get among the boys and learn quickly.”

The session tonight at Taffs Well RFC is free to attend and open to everyone.
