Ahead of the game, Head Coach Stefan Sankala opined:

“The opportunity to play cup rugby and get a performance down at Cardiff has added a different motivation amounts the squad this week. Obviously the pressure of the league campaign adds a different climate but we are looking forward to going out without shackles and enjoying the Saturday afternoon. Cardiff are certainly on a high at the moment and their recent form makes them a dangerous outfit but we have set some expectations that’s will hopefully challenge Cardiff in from of their home crowd.”
