Cardiff City v Watford

Great evening at the Cardiff City Stadium with City finishing 2 1 victors. After Watford went ahead in the first half, Cardiff came out all guns blazing in the second half. But it took a penalty, two red cards for Watford and an added time goal before the win was secured. Six home wins out of six this season. Well done the Bluebirds.

Cardiff Blues v Toulon

Whilst the final score was a win to Toulon by 22 points to 14, the Blues played with much improvement. The forwards held their own and the backs were hungry for the ball. The back to back games against Montpellier in December need to be two wins for the Blues. But whatever the results, it will be a great trip to Montpellier.

Cardiff Blues v Toulon

Really important game tomorrow, make or break for the Blues in this years Heineken Cup competition. Unfortunately, whilst the game is at the Arms Park, the Blues face the star studded Toulon. Toulon will be coming for the win and having seen their performance against Montpellier, last week, they are definitely favourites. However, big names don’ t mean anything if they don’t have the ball. Blues need to start and stay on the front foot, attack, attack, attack!

Hoping for another victory against Toulon, having beaten them in the Amlin Cup not too many years ago. C’mon the Blues!

Cardiff Blues v Sale Sharks

First Heineken Cup match of the season, next Sunday. The Blues travel to Salford for their match against Sale and we are travelling up for the game. Looking forward to a short weekend break.

Both the Blues and Sales (bottom of the Premiership) have had a mixed/poor start to their seasons.

A great weekend in Salford, shame the second half was not as good as the first. We need to stop kicking the ball away without chasing after it. Game changed when Cipriati came off the bench.

Next Sunday’s match against Toulon will be an uphill battle, having watched their match with Montpellier last night.

Cardiff Blues v Glasgow

Well last night should have been a night for victory at CAP but being the slippery banana skin fixture, the Blues recorded their second home defeat in a row. Well done to Glasgow who came to spoil our fun. They were not a good side but they knew how to play the referee and that is all that was needed.

I don’t know whether this was the first competitive game for this referee but I sure hope it is his last! Some of his decision making was unbelievable and at times we questioned whether he understood the rules, at all.

Next game is away in Sale, the first of our Heineken Cup matches, tickets bought and hotel arranged. Let’s hope there is a great improvement in performance and that the drive home will not be about analysing how we should have won the game.
