European Rugby 2018.9

Inconsistent refereeing is ruining the great sport that is rugby.

Without being one eye, it is clear that a rule applied to one team is not equally applied to the other. When should the TMO become involved in a decision? I’m not sure the referee or TMO know the answer.

Referees are spoiling the experience for supporters at a time when clubs and regions need bums on seats. Supporters who are becoming more and more frustrated with poor decision making will stop coming to live matches.

Come on rugby elite, sort this out!!

European Rugby 2018.9

Looking forward to today’s big match against the Saracens. Weather not looking good and will probably favour the Saracens’ pack but hopefully a big Blues home support will push the Blues to victory.

Great result for Cardiif RFC last night against Merthyr. Good to see captain Joe Tomlinson having such a fantastic season.

Cardiff Half marathon

Last year, my mum had a stroke in May and sadly died in August 2017. Having seen her suffer for three months, I decided I needed to change my lifestyle and do something that my mum would be proud of. I set myself a Challenge – to run the Cardiff Half Marathon.

With grateful thanks to my great friend Tony who has dragged me through training, the Cardiff Bay 10k, the Whitchurch 5k and the Cardiff 10K, today I met my challenge and completed the Cardiff Half Marathon.

A massive thank you to Tony but also, I’m sure my mum was looking down on me today helping my along.

Cardiff 10k 2018

Whilst this was my second 10k, it was the first that I have started and finished without stopping in between – really pleased with my run and time 1 hour, 14 minutes and 58 seconds. Not fast but my PB!!

Big thanks to Tony for helping me get there and for keeping me on track for my PB.

Cardiff 5K

A great day today, Cardiff City promoted to the Premiership next season and I managed to finish the Cardiff 5K. Thank you Tony for pulling me along.

Great to run with Nic and Emma too, well at least for the first 1k.

Bilbao next for the Blues v Gloucester in the European Challenge Cup Final – Can’t wait!
