RUGBY-Cardiff Blues v Leinster

Blues v Leinster Panorama
Cardiff Blues took on Leinster at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 19th February infront of a crowd of 10,741 supporters.
The Blues got off to a shaky start with quite a few handling error and Tom James dropping a few balls! Both sides struggled to break away and make an impact in the first half with only a Dan Fish try getting the crowd going and some penalties from the ever-solid Ceri Sweeney.
Leinster full-back, Isa Nacewa, got a penalty just before half-time making the half time score a respectable 8-3 to Cardiff Blues.

In the second half both sides fought hard with eventually Cardiff Blues giving the stronger performance with another penalty kicked by Sweeney. The Blues gained in territory but couldn’t convert that to points with their lead only surviving due to a botched try opportunity from Leinster. (An amazing break away and run but failed by a poor pass!) Sweeney also missed another kick which hit the post, bounced back into play but then bounced back fairly high up and towards the posts again – it nearly went over on the second bounce! (I dont think it would’ve counted anyway then!)

Overall a strong performance from Cardiff Blues against tough opposition with the result of 11-3 to The Blues being a fair reflection of the game and also moving Cardiff Blues to second in the Magners League table.
