Steve Law agrees new deal as Cardiff RFC head coach

Posted by

Cardiff RFC head coach Steve Law will remain in charge of the Blue and Blacks beyond this summer after agreeing a new deal to stay at the Arms Park.

Known as Spot, he has enjoyed great success in the capital city since arriving ahead of the 2017/18 season after 16 years at Bedwas RFC, leading the club to a first period of success in a decade.

The first season in charge was a transitional one as the Cardiff squad began to change noticeably, while the relationship with Cardiff Blues also developed especially after the appointment of John Mulvihill and Gruff Rees in the summer of 2018.

This all led to the best season enjoyed by the Blue and Blacks since 2008/09, with Law guiding his squad to a second place finish in the Principality Premiership and a first WRU Specsavers Cup triumph for 22 years.

That form continued into the most recent campaign as Cardiff went on a 13-game winning streak between September and December, sitting top of the League by seven points and preparing for a Cup semi-final at the point the season was cancelled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Speaking to the Welsh Rugby Union’s website, Cardiff Athletic Club rugby section chairman Chris Norman said, “Completing the new deal for our head coach Steve Law was top of the agenda, but now that’s done we need to review our commitment to the 20+ players we were looking to contract for next season,” said Norman.

“Steve has done a brilliant job in rebuilding the Cardiff RFC brand and winning the Cup last season was the first step in giving the people of Cardiff a team of which they could feel proud once again. We are due to celebrate our 150th anniversary in 2026 and the plan is to be the leading club side in Wales and, if possible, beyond.”
