On Thursday 5th November Welsh rugby super fans, Ed & DJ Harris from Sarasota Florida made their first visit to the Blues new home at Leckwith.
Mr & Mrs Harris who visit the UK three times annually were treated to a tour of the new ground, taking in the chairman's lounge, changing rooms and pitch along the way, they were suitably impressed with the club's new facilities and are looking forward to seeing their first game against London Irish on November 15th.
The couple are keen rugby fans and try and catch as much Magners league action as possible, Mrs Harris told us,
"We watch rugby on Satanta every night, if it's a Welsh team playing we watch the whole match if it's other sides we watch half, we like following the regions so we know the players when they play for Wales".
Mr Harris is descended from Welsh grandparents, his Grandmother originally coming from Tonpentre before emigrating to the United States, he is a very passionate supporter of the national team and even has a Welsh themed pub in his home in Florida.
All at the Blues hope Mr & Mrs Harris have a wonderful time in South Wales over the next two weeks and enjoy their trip to Gloucester on Sunday as well as the Wales v. New Zealand game on the weekend.
Judgement Day IV is nearly upon us. The showpiece event, held for the fourth year running at the Principality Stadium, will see Cardiff Blues facing Ospreys, followed by the clash between Scarlets and the Dragons.
For the past two seasons you may have noticed an artist in the crowd and drawings appearing on twitter and TV. These collections of drawings were all produced from life, on the spot without the use of a camera in order to capture the vibrancy, emotion and atmosphere of the moment.
