The carnival atmosphere at the home of the Cardiff Blues included drinks promotions, food outlets and entertainment with the university keeping 50% of the ticket sales to plough back into their sporting sections. As double winners of the men's and women's competition, Cardiff Metropolitan will enjoy some new Gilbert equipment as a prize for their success.

On the subject of students, WRW are pleased to have been appointed to build the new MODRA Student Accommodation on City Road in Cardiff which will see 152 student bedrooms completed for 2017 occupation.
