It is the first time Cardiff RFC have made it this far in the WRU National Cup since the 2013/14 competition when a bye and a win over Newbridge got us to the third round before losing to Cross Keys at the Arms Park.

You have to go back to 2006/07 for the last trip to the Final, when the Blue and Blacks lost to Llandovery at the Principality Stadium, while we last lifted the trophy in 1996/97, the most recent win of seven triumphs.

Elsewhere Llandovery host Swansea, the only Championship club left Pontypool welcome Bridgend, and the headline tie sees Merthyr take on Pontypridd at The Wern.
