COBRA begin two days of finals in the WRU’s innovative ‘Road to Principality 2022’ community event see the women take over and battle it out for a number of national and regional titles.

Today sees a battle for the North Wales Cup and the South Wales Plate and Cup.

The North Wales Cup final will kick-start the two day festival with WRU Premier League clubs Caernarfon and COBRA meeting at Principality Stadium.

They have met three times this season and when they played in the league it was a good day for Caernarfon, who won Caernarfon 62-15, but COBRA have notched one victory.

That was one of two wins Caernarfon have picked up to date and they are due to meet South Wales Cup finalists Bonymaen in their next league fixture on 8 May. As for COBRA, they simply can;t wait for their chance to play at the home of Welsh rugby.

“We’re all so excited to have the chance to play at Principality Stadium. I’m just so chuffed for the girls to have that experience,” said COBRA head coach, Rhodri Davies.

“The first and second halves of our season have been very different. We were picking up some comfortable wins to begin with, but joining the Premiership was a real eye opener for us.

“They’ve been really competitive games, and the scores haven’t always looked good on paper, but we’ve learned so much. It’s a cliché but we’ve really valued those experiences.

“A real highlight for us has been seeing the amount of U18 girls coming through the system and playing the game. It’s great for us as a team to develop our future players and keep that pathway building.

“It’s been a real team effort at COBRA to get the team to where we are today. Our assistant coach, Robert Rudge has been vital developing the squad especially our forwards.

“Then there’s Ffion Williams, who’s both a player and our team manager. I’m just the coach, she does all the admin stuff behind the scenes, pulls all the girls together and organises everything.”

“We’ve played Caernarfon a few times already this season, so we’re getting to know them pretty well. They are really strong up front and their back three players are really expansive. We know their threats are going to come out wide. If we can match them out there, then we’re in with a good shout.”
