RGC 1404 – Cardiff team news

Cardiff travel to North Wales on Saturday knowing that a point will guarantee them second place in the Principality Premiership.

With Merthyr having clinched the title last weekend and Pontypridd losing to Bridgend the Blue & Blacks sit seven points off top spot and five above third place Ponty who entertain the Champions on Friday. Should they not get maximum points from that game Cardiff can travel in the knowledge of a best placed finish since winning the league in 2008/09.

With four games in the space of 14 days the Blue & Blacks are once again grateful to the clubs who have allowed permits for players to help out following the long season
