"Cardiff Blues matches at the Millennium Stadium have always drawn big crowds and we are delighted with the numbers that turned up for the double header fixture.
"When we, the Blues and Dragons, first approached the WRU regarding holding our home matches at the national stadium we knew there would be a lot of hard work involved.
"However, I think today's matches shows what can be achieved when the regions and the union work together.
"Today was a fantastic way to showcase the best rugby talent in Wales.
"A majority of the players that the regions have developed, who helped win Six Nations championship, were on display.
"I would like to thank our staff who have worked tirelessly alongside the WRU in arranging the match, as well as the union for putting so much financial resource behind the marketing of the games.
"The double header Millennium Stadium matches will, I'm sure, go from strength to strength and today is a great starting point."
