Llanelli – Cardiff Team News

Cardiff make the journey west to Llanelli on Sunday following a week off for the Six Nations games.

The Blue & Blacks will be looking to continue their winning streak in the Principality Premiership to nine games following the bonus point win over Bedwas two weeks ago. “We had a good result against Bedwas in our last game” said Head Coach Steve Law “but we need to improve the performance”. The team shows only two changes up front, Will Davies-King and Jim Botham coming in up front, the back line remains unchanged”

“we know we will have to be at our very best against a Llanelli side that has been improving every week, and with eleven professional players in the squad they are going to be a very different side to the one we played earlier in the season. But we have any ambition we need to go away to places like Llanelli and win games. This is what we have been working on over the last few weeks as every game at this stage of the season is important.”
