Cardiff Blues captain Paul Tito is urging the supporters to get behind the team for this Sunday's must win match against Racing Metro.
Speaking at the Vale of Glamorgan training centre, Tito said,
“We had a big performance at London Irish, which is not an easy place to go and win, but the boys dug in and we came away with the points.”
“We had great support from our fans which made a massive difference to the boys and we showed our appreciation after the game by going to thank them.”
“Hopefully we will see them and a whole lot more this Sunday at the stadium, where we have a must win game.”
“We are really looking forward to this weekend and we know a big performance is required, but we are really up for the challenge.”
“Hopefully we could get a home game again for the quarter finals.”
“If you look at the Racing Metro or London Irish games, the supporters were great. They chanted and yelled at the boys, that’s what we need.”
“When you’re battling and you hear them it’s a good pick up for the boys, they really drove us home on the weekend.”
“In our home games in the stadium this season it has been a bit quiet and it’s noise that we need as we enter the arena to lift us.”
“We want the fans to really get really behind the boys and push a really big performance out of everyone.”
“Racing Metro are a dangerous team and any French team that is down are never out, they fight on.”
“They will want to come here and put on a performance. I’m sure they will want to loosen up and play a little bit more, so we need to counteract that and play some nice attractive rugby as well.”
Season ticket holders are reminded that they can buy additional tickets for the match for only £10 each, with a maximum of two £10 tickets per season ticket holder.
