Cardiff Rugby Supporters' Club held their Annual General Meeting last night at the Clubhouse, during which votes were counted for the annual awards.
Supporters' club members have been submitting their votes over the last month and it proved a very popular one this year - it seems everyone wanted their say on last season!
The CRSC Blues Player of the Year award went to Paul Tito and the committee would like to congratulate Paul on yet another award for his all round performances and commitment to the cause. The runners up in this category were Maama Molitika and Deiniol Jones.
The award for the CRSC Most Improved Player of the Year was a tightly fought battle but in the end our winner was Jamie Roberts who won the CRSC Player of the Year for CRFC this time last year. Well Done Jamie! Not far behind Jamie was Tom James and so our congratulations for a great season go to him too.
The Player of the Year for Cardiff RFC also featured for the Blues in the final game of the season - Leigh Halfpenny. The awards will be presented to the winning players, along with awards for first Wales caps at an event organised by CRSC during the early part of next season - watch the programmes for details and we hope you will be able to join us.
Thank Blues it's Friday! The weekend will be starting HERE on Friday night as Cardiff Blues tackle Ulster in the Guinness PRO12 at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park - and we want you to be our guest at our big match day party!
Let the Games Begin! Cardiff Blues launch the Guinness PRO12 season on home soil this Sunday afternoon against Glasgow Warriors (kick-off 4pm) - and we are going to make it a double celebration as we also recognise the achievements of Team Wales!
As well as the half marathon on Sunday (October 5), the 2014 Lloyds Bank Cardiff Half Marathon also sees the return of the action-packed Lloyds Bank Festival of Running to Cardiff's Civic Centre on Saturday (October 4, starting 11am) where you can see our mascot Bruiser the Bear in action!
Second half tries from Dan Tuohy and Ian Humphreys saw Ulster claim the Friday night points on offer as Cardiff Blues suffered a 26-9 defeat to the impressive Irish province at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park.
Clinical Glasgow Warriors produced a devastating final 20 minutes to secure the points on Super Sunday and consign battling Cardiff Blues to a 33-12 defeat in the Guinness PRO12 opener at BT Sport Cardiff Arms Park.
