Cardiff Blues set to aid Barbarians

Posted by

Cardiff Blues are looking to assist the Barbarians as the famous invitational side look to salvage their game with England on Sunday.

The fixture is in doubt after a reported 12 players breached coronavirus protocols around the camp and left the team hotel this week, making themselves unavailable for selection.

A deadline of 3pm on Friday afternoon has been set by the Rugby Football Union to see if the game can go ahead, and Cardiff Blues are believed to be offering assistance in the form of three players.

The players in question are rumoured to be back rower Will Boyde, centre Max Llewellyn and full-back Ioan Davies, who have been in the training bubble all week and are not required for the trip to Munster on Monday.

Cardiff’s history with the Barbarians goes way back to March 1891 when we were the first club to beat the Baabaas thanks to a 9-4 score line at the Arms Park, while there were many Easter Saturday games between the sides in the second half of the 20th century.
