Late cheap shot mars otherwise fan-loved day for Cardiff Rugby veteran Dan Fish

Appreciation has flooded in for Cardiff Rugby fly-half Dan Fish despite a questionable elbow against Harlequins in the Heineken Cup.

The Welshman, who turns 31 on 19 December, has been with Cardiff for more than a decade and after announcing his retirement in October, Fish responded to the SOS call after their Covid-19 crisis.

With a heavily depleted squad Fish returned for Cardiff Rugby against the Dragons and then after several players were left stranded in isolation in South Africa, he represented his club in the Champions Cup against Toulouse last weekend.

Fish once again came to Cardiff’s aid this weekend to play against Harlequins at Twickenham Stoop, guiding the young side to a brave performance against the English champions.

However after losing 43-17 and putting in a last-minute cheap shot on Quins full back Tyrone Green, Fish may not bow-out in the way he’d hoped.

“Whenever you put that jersey on, it’s got to mean something to you,” Fish told Wales Online. “Hopefully, the supporters have seen the effort I have put in to try and do my best for the club.

“The chant of ‘Feed the Fish’ has seemed to stick. It’s massive for me to hear the people cheering that.”

After being asked what his best memories have been during his club career, Fish added: “Obviously, there was my debut out in Aironi, you are always going to remember your first game.

“Scoring a winning try against Leinster at the Cardiff City Stadium was a special moment and my 100th game out here.

“Every time you put the jersey on, every you run out in front of the fans here, it means so much.

“Living in Cardiff you don’t want to be walking round the streets and have people saying ‘Look, there he is, he let us down at the weekend’. It’s the city I live in, so it’s always massive for me every time I put the jersey on.”
