FULL TIME | Y CHWIBAN OLAF - Cardiff Blues 29 Scarlets 20 - Rey Lee-Lo, Halaholo and Tomos Williams as Cardiff Blues bounce back to make it two derby victories over the festive period!


Penalty Goal

Wonderful penalty from Evans means there are two points separating the sides heading into the final two minutes. 29-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Huge penalty won by Dillon Lewis at scrum time. 26-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Jarrod adds three points from the tee. 26-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Loose pass in midfield and Steff Evans hacks ahead. It might be the Cardiff City Stadium, but he can't continue to show his footballing skills and the ball is tangled under his feet. Cardiff Blues manage to regain possession in the nick of time. 23-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Very clever from Lloyd Williams to hack through on the blind, and it almost paid off as Adams initially gets boot to ball. However, Elias manages to pick up the loose possession and Hardy clears. 23-20 #GuinnessPRO14



Evans sends a cross field across to Botham who shows great skills to keep hold of it and initially beat Steff Evans and Jon Davies on the inside step. The support comes, and with wing Evans in the breakdown, scrum half Williams shows the vision to go over unopposed. 23-20



Hallam Amos is replaced by Corey Domachowski to cover for Carre's sin binning. 18-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Yellow Card

Rhys Carre is sent to the sin bin for a late hit on Sebastian. 18-20 #GuinnessPRO14



Ben Thomas is also on to replace Willis Halaholo in midfield. 18-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Try (Opp.)

Sione Kalamafoni picks up from number eight and crashes over, with Halfpenny's conversion taking the visitors ahead. Full change in the front row sees Dillon Lewis, Ethan Lewis and Rhys Carre on. 18-20 #GuinnessPRO14


Scarlets camped on the line here, thanks to a great nudge from Dan Jones, but are held up after taking a close range tap penalty. 18-13 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal (Opp.)

No mistakes from Halfpenny to narrow the gap. 18-13 #GuinnessPRO14



Seb Davies replaces James Ratti as Leigh Halfpenny lines up for a penalty attempt. 18-10 #GuinnessPRO14

Half Time

HALF TIME | HANNER AMSER - Cardiff Blues 18 Scarlets 10 - Eight points separate the sides as the opening 40 draws to a close. A lively, entertaining and eventful affair here to warm us up in the ice cold conditions.


A series of Cardiff Blues penalties sees the hosts in the corner and applying pressure as half time approaches. 18-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Red Card

After a lengthy TMO review, Liam Williams is shown a red card for a head-on-head on Shane Lewis-Hughes in the ruck. 18-10 #GuinnessPRO14



Ridiculous Tomos Williams offload. Ridiculous Rey Lee-Lo finish. Ridiculous Jarrod Evans conversion. 18-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal (Opp.)

Dan Jones adds a penalty for the visitors. 11-10 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

Gareth Davies brings the promising attack to an end with a cynical foul, and is duly sent to the bin. Evans does the business from the tee. 11-7 #GuinnessPRO14


Thunderous hit and rip from Razor Rey on Jonny Williams, just as Scarlets were looking threatening on the counter, and the attacks is on. Tomos Williams surges up field, before Willis Halaholo jinks his way through, brought down just short. 8-7 #GuinnessPRO14


Lovely chop from Jarrod Evans on Williams, and the wing is penalised on the floor. Tomos Williams takes the quick tap again and feeds Adams who brings play into the Scarlets' half. 8-7 #GuinnessPRO14



Tomos Williams' quick tap puts the hosts on the front foot. Lewis-Hughes trucks up and offloads to Evans who breaks the line and feeds Halaholo on his outside who has the gas to beat Liam Williams to the line. 8-7 #GuinnessPRO14


Try (Opp.)

Scarlets just about gather the line-out despite Shane Lewis-Hughes competing well. They go through the motions and Dan Jones' delayed pass paves the way for Jonathan Davies to cross over. Halfpenny adds the extras. 3-7 #GuinnessPRO14


Bone cruncher from Turnbull as Liam Williams attempts to counter, but the penalty is conceded at the resulting breakdown and Jones bring the visitors into the corner. 3-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Penalty Goal

No mistakes from Jarrod Evans to open the scoring here with the penalty. 3-0 #GuinnessPRO14


Liam Belcher back with a bang in the starting line-up to win an early penalty. 0-0 #GuinnessPRO14
