Match Report

Llandovery 13 Cardiff 35

Cardiff's sixth consecutive win was on the cards as early as the 20th minute when Michael Leaman crossed in the corner for the third try of the quarter. It was the result of brilliant team work that was a feature of the game on a night when the Blue & Blacks confirmed their growing maturity and ability to maximise their skilful, ball-in-hand potential.Before Leaman's try,

Liam Roberts and Elgan Jones had already touched down. With Chris Anderson converting all three Cardiff were 21-0 up against the abrasive, shell-shocked Drovers.The explosive start threatened to be undone when the home side scored a try after a bizarre penalty award when the referee appeared to lose the correct position for the kick that went into the corner for a lineout.

From it, the converted try opened the Drovers' account and two more penalties were goaled to rein back the Blue & Blacks to 21-13.Cardiff reasserted control in the second half. After Anderson converted a penalty try the match ended on a high note when Elgan Jones and Liam Roberts interpassed for the latter to score the fifth converted try and a very satisfactory victory.
