Devils announced tonight Pope, Richardson Martin and Haddad signed for next season.
This is whats set Cardiff apart in the last few years. They consistently retain thier best imports.
I think most most of the top budget teams would be trying to do that also; what Devils have managed to do is have players with enough talent to go elsewhere but choose to stay in the UK. Not sure how they manage that, I guess it must be a combination of a few things.
It is a combination of things in Cardiff, they are extremely well looked after, and held in high respect, excellent accommodation, a great City to live in, playing to sell out crowds, a Coach that is highly respected, and insists on a good dressing room environment. Owners that mix well with players, Great fans, they are made to feel very much at home, and it pays off. Continuity is a huge factor in a club being successful.
