Cardiff Blues travel to Singapore next week for the World Club 10s
Cardiff Blues jet off on tour to Southeast Asia next week to take part in the inaugural World Club 10s in Singapore- and today event organisers have revealed the pools and tournament schedule.
The World Club 10s will be the first international sports event held at the new 55,000-seater National Stadium at the Singapore Sports Hub on Saturday, June 21 and Sunday, June 22.
Blues have taken up an invite to compete in the competition and will announce a 16-man tour party later this week.
The official tournament draw took place today (Wednesday) and Blues will compete in Pool B alongside the Brumbies, Asia Pacific Dragons - an invitational squad of the fiercest players throughout Asia and the Pacific Islands - and Petrarca Rugby.
Pool A will see Auckland Blues, Biarritz, London Welsh and Samoa Water Presidents 10s all compete.
Each day will run from 9am to early evening and is focused around a series of 20 minute rugby matches, including 12 Pool matches on the Saturday and 12 Knockout matches on the Sunday.
Blues kick-off on Saturday, June 21 when they face The Asia Pacific Dragons at 12.09pm.
The second game will see Blues tackle Petrarca Rugby (kick-off 3.18pm) before they complete proceedings on the opening day with the final game in Pool B and a clash with Super 15 giants the Brumbies (kick-off 6.24pm).
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.
