CC Report 2000 Cardiff Cougars 18 Rochdale M 10

16th January 2000, 16:23

Rhodri Thomas who played in the game said: "The second round was played at UWIC Rugby League's home ground at Llandaff and was featured on BBC television‟s Grandstand with Ray French on the sidelines. Our 18-10 win was probably the shock of the round as Rochdale Mayfield were a very good side. We had some very good players at that time - I think we had six Great Britain student internationals and almost the entire squad had represented Wales at student level."

 

Cardiff‟s win over Rochdale Mayfield was heavily featured in local papers in both Cardiff and Rochdale with the Rochdale Observer producing the headline "Welshmen spoil Field‟s Dreams". Cardiff‟s reward for their efforts was an away trip to Keighley Cougars.
