Sam Warburton waiting on Cardiff offer
November 3, 2013
Sam Warburton is still waiting for a response from Cardiff Blues after telling them he wants to stay in Wales even though he is being linked with French clubs Clermont, Toulon and Racing Metro.
"I've told Cardiff and the WRU that I want to extend (my contract) and sign here," he told the BBC. "I'm awaiting an offer. I haven't received anything yet, but that's my preferred option at this moment in time."
Warburton also said he was fed up with the saga of the future of European rugby. "It's going around in circles and nothing seems to be getting resolved. It's got to the stage now where I don't want to know anything about the European situation until it's resolved.
"Without sounding disrespectful, it's almost bored me. I don't know what's going and don't have any control over what happens. It's a waiting game and as soon as anything happens I'll be keen to know, but until then I'll just forget about it."
