Cardiff Blues 34 - 15 Edinburgh
HT 3-10
Mon 22 March 20:00 Cardiff Arms Park Ref: Nigel Owens Guinness PRO14

New front row but another massive effort at scrum time wins a crucial penalty. 27-15 #GuinnessPRO14


That's a massive defensive set from the hosts. Edinburgh forced to go for the jugular with a long pass, but it's forward. 27-15 #GuinnessPRO14



Owens has his arm out for the advantage and with free play, Williams delivers a perfects chip behind, right into the bread basket for Evans to dive in under the sticks. 27-15 #GuinnessPRO14


Hoyland runs across field and is taken down by Turnbull. The full back gets back on his feet, but referee Owens pulls him back as he was held. Evans' long range effort just drifts to the right of the posts. 20-15 #GuinnessPRO14

Kristian Dacey and James Ratti replace Liam Belcher and Seb Davies here as we head for the final 15 at CAP. 20-15 #GuinnessPRO14



Rhys Carre, Dillon Lewis and Hallam Amos are all introduced, replacing Rhys Gill, Dmitri Arhip and Aled Summerhill. 20-15 #GuinnessPRO14


Try (Opp.)

Edinburgh's tempo in attack causing problems, with Taylor crossing for his second after instrumental work from Hoyland. Conversion is pushed wide. 20-15 #GuinnessPRO14



Edinburgh fumble and Ben Thomas sense an opportunity to go. He goes wide and to Nipper, who makes yet another break and feeds Summerhill with a stunning, flat pass. The wing is just taken down but offloads to Lee-Lo who finishes. 20-10 #GuinnessPRO14



Plenty of patience from the pack to go through the motions, banging on the Edinburgh door. Liam Belcher is eventually the man to power his way over, with Evans adding the extras. 13-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Huge shift from the pack to win a penalty and a great nudge from Evans takes us into the corner. 6-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Wonderful snipe from Lloyd Williams, who makes a clean break, but just can't find the support on his outside. Edinburgh look to take advantage of the broken field, but Harries, Lee-Lo and Turnbull hold up Sau in the tackle and win the scrum turnover. 6-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Evans adds a penalty as Edinburgh concede a penalty under the shadows of the sticks. 6-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Huge leap from Matthew Morgan to take the high ball, and his work pays off as Edinburgh concede the penalty. A huge driving line-out puts the hosts on the front foot and within meters. 3-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Half Time

Savala's penalty attempt is off target, with the sides heading in for the break with seven point separating them. 3-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Great work from big Josh Turnbull to force a turnover as Edinburgh set-up the driving line-out five meters out. The front row complete the job to win a penalty at the resulting scrum. 3-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Try (Opp.)

Having applied pressure for most of the half, Edinburgh eventually find their way through the home defence as George Taylor touches down. Savala adds the extras. 3-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Edinburgh set up for the driving line-out and as Mike Willemse breaks off, Ellis Jenkins and Dmitri Arhip combine to turn over at a crucial time. 3-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

We're back level here at Cardiff Arms Park as Jarrod Evans opens his account for the evening. 3-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Conversion (Opp.)

Nipper slicing through the Edinburgh defence on a couple of occasions, and looking lightning this evening on the counter, but eventually finds himself isolated and Edinburgh win the penalty. Charlie Savala breaks the deadlock from the tee. 0-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Evans strikes the uprights with a penalty attempt, but Lee-Lo is on red alert to pick up the pieces and give the hosts an attacking opportunity here. They go through the phases with good tempo but the ball is eventually knocked on in the tackle. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Ellis Jenkins very much getting stuck in with the carries this evening, hitting the ball flat, which eventually creates half a chance for Nipper to break. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Excellent tackle from Jarrod Evans on Hoyland, and somehow Cardiff Blues' Liam Belcher appears with the ball. Williams clears and Arhip wins a breakdown penalty on Edinburgh's attempted counter. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


First carry for Rey Lee-Lo in the 13 channel, who does well to win some hard yards after an Edinburgh line-out is stolen. However, the ball is knocked on in midfield as Cardiff Blues look to switch play to the right. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Big intensity and pressure from the visitors in the opening 10 minutes, but the hosts keeping them out at the moment. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


A clever kick from Edinburgh pin the hosts back in their own corner, but the boot of Lloyd Williams clears the danger. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Edinburgh flying out of the blocks in the opening couple of minutes but a good read in defence by Lloyd Williams prevents the visitors from going wide and Sau knocks on in the next phase. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14
