Pro12: Cardiff Blues set for artificial pitch debut

Cardiff Blues train for the first time on their new artificial pitch ahead of their first game on the synthetic surface.

Director of rugby Phil Davies emphasises their desire to play an attractive brand of rugby at Cardiff Arms Park.

And Davies believes his players will be able to express themselves as they say farewell to the mud-bath that greeted them on occasions in 2013-14.

Sale Sharks visit the Blues on Friday in a pre-season friendly. BBC Wales Today's Ashleigh Crowter reports.
