Full Time

FULL TIME | Y CHWIBAN OLAF - Cardiff Blues 29 Ospreys 20 - More than 11 months later, the 20/21 campaign comes to an end as we secure a double over Ospreys! Tries from Jason Harries & Josh Adams, and Tovey impeccable from the tee! Buddugoliaeth i ddod a'r tymor i ben!


Another scrum penalty allows Tovey to find touch in the Ospreys half. 29-13 #GuinnessPRO14


We might be approaching the end of the season, but the hits are still flying in. Garyn Smith smashes Protheroe, before Ioan Davies stops Reuben Morgan Williams as he looked to break. 29-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

100 per cent continues for Tovey, who's penalty makes it a three score game! 29-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Brilliant read by Lewis Jones in defence to prevent Ospreys from going wide. Ethan Lewis with good defence to stop Mat Protheroe in full flow too. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


End to end! Lewis Jones breaks after charing down, but knocks on. Cross then counters and finds space in midfield, but Botham recovers with a wonderful tackle. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14



Ioan Davies and Lewis Jones on here, as well as big Sam Moore for his debut! 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Lovely snipe from Lloyd Williams to draw the defenders, free his hands and send Ethan Lewis crashing down the centre. However, with the ball going wide, Tovey is isolated and Ospreys manage a vital turnover. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14



Ethan Lewis is on, replacing Liam Belcher. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Big carry from Scott Andrews in midfield sets the tone in attack. Tovey eventually spots space behind and a tidy grubber pins Ospreys back in their corner. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Yellow Card

Olly Cracknell is sent to the sin bin, after a series of penalties against Ospreys. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Brad Thyer and Seb Davies combine with a big shot on Alun Wyn Jones. They seem to rip the ball in contact but the tackle was already called, resulting in an Ospreys penalty. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14



Corey Domachowski and Dmitri Arhip are replaced by Brad Thyer and Scott Andrews after some big shifts. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Jason Tovey maintains his perfect record from the tee to open up a 13 point lead. 26-13 #GuinnessPRO14


A massive driving line-out sees us advance deep into Ospreys territory and once again Toby Booth's side are penalised for offside. 23-13 #GuinnessPRO14



A host of changes for the away side here, as we pack down for a Cardiff Blues scrum on the edge of the home side's 22. 23-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Five from five for Jason Tovey here, as he continues to chip away at the scoreboard. 23-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Shane Lewis-Hughes is everywhere! Popping up now to fend and break into the Ospreys 22 and put his side on the front foot. Big display by the academy product here. 20-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Huge shot by big SLH who has come out firing in this second half! 20-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Tovey's penalty puts us back ahead by seven! 20-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Another penalty after Ospreys sack a maul. Tovey asks for the tee to come on this time. 17-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Huge work from Shane Lewis-Hughes from the restart to force a turnover scrum. Free kick from the resulting scrum sees Botham take the tap. 17-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Half Time

HALF TIME | HANNER AMSER - Cardiff Blues 17 Ospreys 13 - Tries from Jason Harries and Josh Adams give Cardiff Blues the edge at the interval. Gêm gystadleuol yma yng Nghasnewydd, a Josh Adams a Jason Harries yn croesi i roi'r tîm cartref ar y blaen.


Perfectly weighted chip by Tovey puts Morgan in space in midfield. 17-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Try (Opp.)

Ospreys reply with their first try of the afternoon, after Tipuric wins the race to Myler's kick behind. Dan Evans eventually finds a gap to power through from close range. 17-13 #GuinnessPRO14



It's yet another try for the lightning wing! Roles reversal this time, as Harries supplies Adams with a lovely grubber behind the defensive line. Seven in eight for the Welsh international! Superb conversion from Tovey. 17-6 #GuinnessPRO14


Dewi Cross kicks the ball dead and we come all the way back to the edge of the Ospreys 22 for a scrum. Neat move off the scrum allows Nipper to kick ahead, but the touchline just beats Harries and Dan Evans to the bouncing ball. 10-6 #GuinnessPRO14



Unfortunate for Max Llewellyn who is forced off here. Ben Thomas is his replacement. 10-6 #GuinnessPRO14


Fine work from Botham to pick up Rhys Webb's knock on and break downfield after beating a couple of defenders. 10-6 #GuinnessPRO14



Tovey with the extras from out wide! Cychwyn cryf i'r tîm 'cartref' yma yng Nghasnewydd yn dilyn cais Jason Harries! 10-6 #GuinnessPRO14



TRY TIME! After fine work from Llewellyn, Cardiff Blues remain composed. Tovey almost sends Navidi through. The back row's offload goes to ground, but it's gathered by Adams who feeds fellow wing Harries in the corner. 8-6 #GuinnessPRO14


Possession is once again won back at the restart, and Max Llewellyn's half break and offload puts Adams in space to advance into opposition 22. 3-6 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal (Opp.)

Navidi not happy with that one as he is penalised for not releasing. Myler takes full advantage to add a second penalty and regain his side's lead. 3-6 #GuinnessPRO14


High kick is sent hanging in the air. Adams and Cross compete in the air, with the Ospreys wing knocking on in the process. 3-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

As simple as they come for the outside, who brings us back level. 3-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Ospreys are penalised this time for offside, and Tovey will look to get his first points of the day at his old stomping ground. 0-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Webb again look to find territory deep in Cardiff Blues' half, but Josh Adams calls for the mark. Clearly heard, as expected, here in Rodney Parade! 0-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Tiaan Thomas Wheeler looks to pin Cardiff Blues back with a low kick into the 22, but Adams and Morgan pair up to clear the danger. 0-3 #GuinnessPRO14


The ball falls to Liam Belcher as Cardiff Blues reclaim possession immediately from the restart here. 0-3 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal (Opp.)

No mistakes from the experienced Myler who opens the scoring at Rodney Parade.


Ospreys have a penalty inside the Cardiff Blues half, and Stephen Myler will look to get to scoreboard ticking here. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14
