Cardiff Blues were forced to battle hard to hold on for a topsy-turvy Guinness PRO14 victory that sees them into fourth in Conference A.

 

It was a disappointing result in an end to end game. Two second half tries from Shane Delahunt and one from John Muldoon to add to Niyi Adeolokun’s first half effort meant we left Cardiff Arms Park with 2 points.
