Wilson makes case for the defence

25th June 2015

Head Coach Danny Wilson has revealed his determination to ensure a solid set piece and powerful defence are the foundations at Cardiff Blues next season.

Pre-season is underway at Cardiff Blues with Wilson at the helm after he took the top job earlier this month.

And he has revealed what fans can expect from his team as the countdown continues to the new campaign.

“In any team, you need a foundation and for me that is a set-piece,” said Wilson. “You need a platform to be able to play off, whether it’s scrum or line-out.

“I would like to think we will produce a line-out drive and we will have to be able to defend one.

“Another big part of the foundation is defence. We need to improve the defence here at Cardiff Blues.

“We need a mind-set and a culture that we are proud of our defence and that we are very difficult to break down.

“We will score tries; there is no doubt about that. But we also need to be able to defend for long periods of time and under pressure.

“If we can get those two foundations right, it will allow us to play the attacking rugby that we want to play.”
