Cardiff – Bridgend Ravens team news

Cardiff entertain Bridgend Ravens at the Arms Park on Friday night looking to continue the run of wins the Blue & Blacks are on.

Last week in the Cup Cardiff progressed through to the Semi-Finals where they will play Llandovery. Head Coach Steve Law said of that game “it was a good performance against Bedwas, and we are delighted to progress through to the next round. Tonight though will be another ‘cup’ game. All the sides we now have to play will be looking for points either at the top or the bottom of the table, and we will need to match the performance from last week to get anything out of the Ravens game.

The side shows a couple of changes and the way the team is playing it is very hard to leave people out. We have several games left this season and of course we are ambitious as to what can be achieved, but changes are kept to a minimum as much as we can. Training has been very positive this week and we are very much looking forward to the challenge”
