If host club Cardiff Blues need some motivation for this year's Singha Premiership Rugby 7s Series, they need look no further than centre Cory Allen according to coach Richard Hodges.
The draw for the quarter-finals of the Redrow Homes Blues Cup was made this week at the Cardiff Blues training base at the Vale of Glamorgan.
Fixtures for the cup have been significantly hampered in the second round due to some challenging weather over the Christmas and New Year period.
The quarter final games are to be played between the 28th of February and the 13th of March.
