Speaking of his decision to return home Bill Millard said,
"My two years with the Blues have been exactly what I wanted it to be - although I didn't think I would miss home so much."
"I have learnt a lot, met some friends for life and enjoyed the challenge of coaching in the northern hemisphere."
"Being involved in the quarter finals and semi finals of the Heineken Cup and winning the EDF Energy Cup at Twickenham are obviously great memories I take with me."
"I would like to thank everyone at Cardiff Blues for making me feel so welcome and for giving me the opportunity."
"There is a fair bit of rugby to go this season and obviously I want to continue to contribute as much as I can to the team over the forthcoming months."
David Young, Cardiff Blues Director of Rugby added,
"Bill has done a great job of not only developing the young players we have at the Blues but also has been a big part of our coaching team."
"Part of his brief when he arrived was to help develop two young Welsh coaches, Justin Burnell and Gareth Baber, who had both been previously coaching at the Blues Academy."
"It was always our intention for him to work for two seasons with the Blues, before passing on the reigns to our home grown talent."
"I would like to thank Bill for all his work since he arrived from Australia and wish him the best of luck with his future career."
