Fans Have Spoken - Greatest Cardiff Fifteen Of All Time


By Craig Muncey
July 25 2016

Throughout this summer, I asked the fans to vote on the various social media outlets, to select a player for each respective position to finally come up with the greatest Cardiff Rugby side. Thank you to all who have got involved, I have enjoyed putting up the various polls by position, and seeing how you all voted. I am pleased to publish the greatest fifteen that were selected by the fans, and to give another team for you to compare against, I have selected my greatest 15 as well, which I did as a bit of fun last year.

Fans Greatest Cardiff XV

15. Mike Rayer

Many similarities with the two sides, and so many great players who have missed out, such as Terry Holmes, Mark Ring, Alan Phillips and John Scott just to name a few.

Thanks again everyone for getting involved, now over to you all, what would be your own respective side? Please let me know!
