Craig issues War-low cry; LLANELLI v BRIDGEND.

Byline: By Delme Parfitt

CRAIG WARLOW has fired an early warning shot at his old club Llanelli ahead of Bridgend's "last-chance saloon" quarter-final clash at Stradey Park.

The Wales A fly-half has rejuvenated his career at the Brewery Field after being rejected by the Scarlets two seasons ago.

And Warlow has vowed the Ravens will throw everything at Welsh rugby's cup kings in six days' time.

"People are expecting us to go down there and just be cannonfodder for them, " said the 27-year-old.

"This is almost like a last-chance saloon for us in terms of getting something out of what has been a very disappointing season.

"We could not have asked for a harder draw but we are capable of some fantastic things.

"We just need to do it over 80 minutes instead of just in dribs and drabs.

"If you look at Llanelli they seem to be in the same position at this stage every year - looking forward to several really big games.

"That is the position we need to be putting ourselves in year in, year out."

Bridgend's woes this term have been well documented, but there looked to be far more confidence and shape about them in their 53-30 success against Glasgow last weekend.

"Allan Lewis has come here and freshened things up for us, " admitted Warlow.

"But I owe a lot to Dennis John, who breathed new life into my career by giving me the chance to come here and play.

"Sure, nobody will give us a chance at Llanelli, but we're going to give it one hell of a go."
