Warburton hopeful of bright Blues future

Warburton hopeful of bright Blues future

Sam Warburton has enjoyed tremendous success with both Wales and the British & Irish Lions – and he is now hopeful that the same will follow with Cardiff Blues.

Sam Warburton has enjoyed tremendous success with both Wales and the British & Irish Lions – and he is now hopeful that the same will follow with Cardiff Blues.

The Blues have faltered since winning a European trophy in 2010 but Lions skipper Warburton has remained loyal throughout, having made his debut for the club six years ago.

There has been little to shout about this season too after former director of rugby Mark Hammett left in February just six months in to his reign.

And though 26-year-old Warburton admits a long road is ahead for the Blues, he is confident that the framework is in place for a successful future.

"I think that we all realise now – the players, the board, management, everyone – that it's got to be a long-term vision," Warburton told the BBC.

"The head coach that comes in, whoever that's going to be, will have three years which will bring some stability for him and that's what we need.

"We want to be achieving. Realistically next season we just want to stabilise, do a bit better than we did this year and keep improving.”
