PHOTOS-Cardiff Blues v Glasgow Warriors

Cardiff Blues v Glasgow Warriors
Amidst one of the frostiest November’s on record and Cardiff Blues were taking on Glasgow Warriors at the Cardiff City Stadium.
The date and time of the match was chosen by the fans due to it falling on the same weekend that New Zealand took on Wales at the Millennium Stadium – where the Saturday lunchtime kickoff was favoured by fans. Over 3,000 cold, but eager fans, turned up to support their home side.

The first half was pretty tit for tat with both sides playing cautiously with no-one really breaking away or making much of an impression on the pitch.

But come the second half the whole game seemed to go up a notch with the intensity and tempo increasing. Cardiff Blues broke away with some tries and conversions from well deserved man of the match Ceri Sweeney.

Considering it was minus 4oC, a bigger game of rugby was on the cards in the Millennium Stadium later and some of the higher profile Blues players weren’t playing – the 3,000 strong crowd really became passionate in the second half with a really rousing atmosphere watching what turned into one of the best Blues games I have seen this year at the Cardiff City Stadium.
