In this section of the site, you can see profiles of the Cardiff Blues squad members. It includes, information and photos on the players and coaches at the Arms Park.


Dan Baugh is undoubtedly a Cardiff legend, who, if 100% fit would still be the best forward in the Celtic League. However, Dan announced his retirement from playing rugby in 2005, and is now training to become a conditionning coach, with Tristan Bevan.

He joined the club in 1998 after back-row forward Gwyn Jones broke his neck. He was brought as cover after his friend John Humphreys recommended him as we could 'get him on the cheap'.

8 years and 82 appearances later, Dan now occupies a part-time coaching role and is fighting to regain fitness so he can make a contribution in this, his final season.

There are many fans who's favourite recent Cardiff memory is of Dan Baugh, be it his double tackle on two Llanelli players in the 2000 principality cup semi-final, or his astonishing tackle against Swansea that left both players over the barrier in the Cardiff stand or even his magnificent display against Llanelli in the 65-16 cup win in 2001.

He is a true ambassador for the club and region and will be a huge boost to the coaching staff.
