Bragging rights will be up for grabs at the Arms Park tonight (October 3) when Cardiff Met and Cardiff Univeristy go head-to-head in the BUCS Super Rugby tournament.

They kicked-off their Super Rugby career with a home clash with reigning champions Hartpury last week, going down 31-14, and meet last season’s runners-up in round two.
The summer is over and Glamorgan are left to reflect on the third worst season in the county’s history. Alun Rhys Chivers says the county’s awards night just about merited a winner, but lessons of the past must be learned if more embarrassment is to be avoided in the future. Awards dinners held by Glamorgan County Cricket Club in Cardiff and the St. Helen’s Balconiers in Swansea signify the end of the cricket season; occasions to reflect, as well as to celebrate and reward those who have excelled with willow and leather on the field. While there has been little to celebrate this season in terms of team performances, the St. Helen’s Balconiers Awards on October 1 offered an opportunity to mark, amongst other things, 25 years since Glamorgan’s triumph in winning the Sunday League title, one of the county’s major achievements in its 130-year history.

But she is thrilled at the prospect of joining up with the rest of the Welsh team on the streets of the capital, particularly after her season was threatened by serious injury.
Graham Potter insisted he was happy to escape from the “bedlam” of a goalless draw at Wigan with a point that lifted Swansea City into the Championship play-off places. The Swans manager watched his team spurn a number of opportunities to take all three points on Tuesday night and claim a victory which would have put them within one win of the top two. But Potter was also indebted to goalkeeper Kiristoffer Nordfeldt – surprisingly picked ahead of Erwin Mulder – for a superb save to deny Wigan striker Will Grigg.
