Speaking of the mach Gafyn Cooper, Blues Performance Manager said, "This a great opportunity for Patrick to experience Regional rugby and we are fully supportive of him having a match for the Dragons. We look forward to welcoming him back to the Academy next season after a very successful season for him with Cardiff RFC and Wales.
