Double blow for Blues
November 26, 2007
Cardiff Blues have been dealt a blow to their Magners League title hopes with Rhys Williams and Robert Sidoli both ruled out for the season with injuries.
Wales fullback Williams is out for the rest of the campaign after he dislocated a knee in the Blues' 17-5 defeat to Glasgow.
And fellow international Robert Sidoli is also out after the lock dislocated his shoulder.
The Wales duo join a growing injury list at the Arms Park that includes Chris Czekaj, Marc Stcherbina, Nick Macleod, Nick Robinson, Richie Rees, James Goode and Andy Powell are all sidelined.
