State of Play: Down to the final four!

First Team News | 4th March 2019

We're down to the final four games of the regular Guinness PRO14 campaign, and Cardiff Blues remainly firmly in the race for a top three finish in Conference A.

Following three wins in four games, John Muvlhill's side are one of the in-form sides in the Championship at the moment, but Connacht current edge the race for third spot on points difference.

A bonus point win over Southern Kings means that Wales' Capital Region remain level on points with the Irish province, who defeated Ospreys on the weekend to leave the Swansea-based outfit trailing by eight points.

Following two weeks of Guinness Six Nations action, where Warren Gatland's Wales side ramp-up their bid for a Grand Slam, the Blues will return to the Welsh capital on Saturday March 22, as Scarlets visit the Arms Park for a fiery post-Six Nations derby encounter.

Two of the final four games are home, including the Judgement Day clash against Ospreys at Principality Stadium on the final day of the Championship.

There are back-to-back trips to Ireland to take on Munster and Connacht, making for a mouth-watering end to the campaign.

A third-placed finish would keep the Blues in the hunt for the Guinness PRO14 title, placing them in the quarter final, while it would also retain their spot in next season's Heineken Champions Cup.
