    Blue knock on, Scrum blue

    Not the first time we have seen this at pro level , they really need to sort this out.

    Who would start a game with these two strips?

    One of those teams is wearing their jerseys inside out if I am the ref.

    The decision on collours is made by the tournament organisers - CRAZY

    Cardiff's change kit was 15 miles away at their training base - CRAZY

    Glasgow only brought one kit with them - Fair enough.

    Really stupid things?

    This has happened at a game between Cardiff and Glagow before!

    They play in the same league so know each others colours well.

    15 miles isn't even that far. The two teams must have been at the ground a couple of hours before kick off , plenty of time to phone someone at the training ground and say bring the kit.
    Failing that time enough for a round trip you would think.
    One article said Cardiff were unwilling to change asthey were at home

    Sadly it was probably down to the referee to sort this out .

    I am reminded of the icy 6N evening in France where no one would cancel the game until th
    eventually it got close enough to the kick off for the referee to take control. Dave Pearson, wasn't it

    It was no doubt Glasgow being cocky trying to force Cardiff into changing into away kit. I dont think it was particularly sporting.

    Both sides were wearing the kit the tournament organisers had told them to wear two weeks prior

    Nope not at all. Down to the organisers. Although Cardiff should have had a spare kit at the ground in my opinion.

    Tbh , at pro level , all teams should be required to bring a change kit to the ground , for every game.
    Then when there is a clash they can check the regs and determine who has to change

    At grass roots level I always take three shirts in my kitbag .. you can never be sure what the teams will turn up in

    The trip would have been an hour give or take (The centre is in country lanes linked to the M4 and there are weekend road works being done on a regular basis at the moment). There would be no staff there to bring the kit direct on a Sunday. It is not owned by Cardiff so not manned days a week.

    Cardiff Were not unwilling to change.

    There warm up etc in traing tops. So would not have seen the playing kit untill the toss.

    All that said I would have thought that the "official" kit would have been sent to all teams in a group AND the referee so a backstop check would have been in place.

    THe clash should have been spoted at the planning stage and the appropriate side (depending on the protocol for the competition) told to change. But why Cardiff did not have a second option at the ground is plan stupid.
