Cardiff Uni And Cardiff Met Set Up Potential Sell-Out Showdown At The Arms Park

The build-up to the battle of Cardiff’s two university rugby teams at the Arms Park on Wednesday 5 October intensified as both Joe Cowell’s Cardiff Met team and Luke Pollock’s Cardiff University side got off to winning starts in the BUCS Super Rugby competition. The Met stars had to come from behind at St Helen’s before they avenged their home defeat to Swansea University in last season’s competition, eventually triumphing 42-30 in front of a huge crowd, while Pollock’s men snatched victory at the death with a late try at Bath, winning 22-21. It means their derby night out at the Arms Park looks set to be a thriller.
