1st Royal Welsh Battalion will be deploying to Afghanistan next month, with the whole regiment in theatre by the end of October. Cardiff Blues wish a warm welcome to those from the battalion who will be at the game on Saturday raising money for their benevolent fund. They'll be situated around the ground selling their charity wristbands and shaking their buckets. Please give generously.
They will also be bringing a 'Warrior' armoured vehicle, these 25.4 ton machines are used by the 1st Royal Welsh Battalion in conflict areas such as Afghanistan. Supporters at the ground on Saturday will be able to view this huge combat vehicle up close as well as meeting those soldiers who will be using it when they deploy next month.
The Warrior will be parked in Car Park C of Cardiff City Stadium, just outside the Megastore.
Tickets for this game are still available at www.cardiffblues.com/tickets, on 0845 345 1400 or in person at the Cardiff City Stadium ticket office.
