Efan Jones: Cardiff Challenge

Efan Jones: Cardiff Challenge 13 Jan 2022

RGC face Cardiff on Saturday, a game that will be their first home Indigo Group Premiership league game of the season.   Having won one and lost one on the road, they will be looking to follow on from the last performance against Llanelli at the start of the front of the S4C cameras.

Having played Cardiff twice this season, it has been the Blue and Blacks that have come out on top in both games.  The visitors have only played one league game so far, and that was last weeks defeat to Carmarthen Quins.

This game will be again played in a different atmosphere with a limited amount of season ticket holders only in attendance in the Eirias stands.

Efan Jones knows the challenges have not just been on the field as teams have been dealing with the stop/start season games wise

"We have kept up training and Will Cusack (S&C Coach) gave us home programmes to do last weekend, so all the boys were in the gym plus doing some running to make sure we are ready for this Saturday. The Cardiff game will be strange with a lack of home support, but it's something we have to deal with. 

As we are now in the league season, it's a chance to back up that Llanelli victory and build some momentum.  We know Cardiff will be coming up to Eirias looking to put last week's Quins defeat behind them so our performance needs to be at a high level"
