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.
