RuggaMatrix International 021 – Cardiff Calling

RuggaMatrix goes into the Cardiff Blues camp this week for a revealing chat with backs coach Bill Millard. It’s our first look inside the Welsh system and a thoroughly enjoyable one too.

Millard is a product of the Australian Rugby system leading outfits like Sydney University, the Australian Sevens and Melbourne Rebels in the 2007 Australian Rugby Championship. The Blues take on Leicester Tigers on Sunday in the second semifinal of the Heineken Cup at Millennium Stadium.

On Saturday Croke Park will play host to the battle of the Irish big guns Munster v Leinster.

We look at the British and Irish Lions before checking out the Super 14 table with three rounds to play and also cast an eye across the USA Super League which is nearing the play-offs and our man in New York, Bruce McLane is all over it.

Our in-depth analysis subject this week isĀ  RECRUITMENT.

It’s the number one coaching issue for Ewen McKenzie and with Bruce McLane the pair mount a powerful argument for it being the top agenda item in the back room. Les Kiss gets the night off after being down under for a few weeks.
