John Mulvihill updates Cardiff Blues transfer situation

Following his sides 34-24 victory over Benetton Cardiff Blues head coach John Mulvihill updated the media on where the region stands with regards to its current transfer negotiations. 

Cardiff Blues remain in progress

We’ve probably got some things coming our way sooner or later,” said Mulvihill. “But we can’t say too much as players who are interested in coming are contracted elsewhere. We’ll wait and see, we’re getting close,” he added. 

Cardiff have been linked with numerous players, but are yet to announce any fresh signings. Last season saw them bring in Welsh ace winger Josh Adams and former Dragons back three Hallam Amos.

Cardiff scrap past Benetton

The Blues scrapped past a tough Benetton outfit to claim a bonus point win at the Cardiff Arms Park. The win, with tries courtesy of Jason Harries, Garyn Smith, Lewis Jones, Ryan Edwards and Seb Davies saw them home.

It keeps them in the hunt for a playoff berth, currently sitting fifth in conference B on 29 points they lie eight points behind the Scarlets who currently hold the third playoff spot.

A strong second half display of tactical kicking, physical defence and spatial awareness will lift the Cardiff Blues’ spirits before they travel to Edinburgh on the back of a five-day turnaround.

Turnbull ready for a physical battle

Man of the Match Josh Turnbull spoke of how tough Edinburgh will be and looks forward to an exciting battle.

We’ve done well up there in recent years and as long as we got our game plan right it’ll be important to go up excited. They’ve got a decent pack and backs that like to play.

We may not be able to do much physically this week but mentally if we switch on we can be in good place.”

Cardiff will have to pull an upset with Edinburgh in strong form this season, hosting the top spot in the conference.
