Tickets now available for Bleddyn Williams Challenge

Tickets & Travel | 4th March 2020

Tickets are now available for the Bleddyn Williams Challenge at Cardiff Arms Park, which will see Cardiff Blues XV take on Royal Air Force Rugby Union.

To celebrate the Royal Air Force Rugby Union's centenary year, Cardiff Blues will compete in the inaugural Bleddyn Williams Challenge at the Arms Park in May.

Both Cardiff Blues and Cardiff Blues Women will field select sides to take on the RAF on Saturday, May 9, in a celebration of 100 years of rugby in the service and the life of the great Bleddyn Williams MBE.

Williams, widely acclaimed as the Prince of Centres, earned legendary status playing in the blue and black of Cardiff RFC during the 1940s and 50s.

He captained the British Lions on their tour of Australia and New Zealand in 1950 and famously led both Cardiff and Wales to victory over the All Blacks in 1953.

During World War Two, Williams trained as a fighter pilot and later became a glider pilot, taking part in the famous Operation VARSITY. Throughout the war years, he continued to excel at rugby both for Great Britain and the RAF.

Gates will open at 12pm on the day, with a fantastic day of rugby in store at the Welsh capital.
