The Cardiff Blues heroes who helped Wales win their first Grand Slam in 27 years are to be unveiled as the 'Magnificent Seven' in a new poster.
The poster, to go up outside the home of Cardiff Blues in Westgate Street, shows Martyn Williams, Gethin Jenkins, Robert Sidoli, Rhys Williams, Robin Sowden-Taylor, John Yapp and Tom Shanklin, in a cinema-style pose.
It's hoped the poster will give the Blues a lift for their last two games of season, kicking off against Ulster on Friday night.
Cardiff Blues commercial manager Tina Tew told the Echo: "We are immensely proud of our seven players who played such a great part in Wales' Grand Slam Success.
"Our Magnificent Seven poster rightly celebrates their contribution and hopefully will encourage as many people as possible to support Cardiff Blues at our two remaining homes games against Ulster on April 8 and against Borders on April 15."
