Cardiff earned another away day bonus point to keep them in the hunt for third place in the league.
But it didn't look that way from the start as straight from the kick off the side scored the first try of the game. As the kick off landed near the Blue & Black twenty two it was claimed by Bedwas. They moved the ball to the far side of the field before switching play the other way to allowed Harley Thompson to score in the corner, Richard Powell added the extras from wide out.
That early setback stung the away team into action and after a series of thrusts at the line James Whittingham landed a penalty to get Cardiff on the board. He doubled that score a few minutes later before the Blue & Blacks took the lead. A series of penalties landed Cardiff in the home twenty-two. Several attempts to cross the line were thwarted before Will Rees Hole crashed his way over to continue his current rich scoring form. Whittingham added the conversion before things got better for Cardiff. Mike Hale was next on the score sheet as a well worked short line out saw the scrum half shoot round the blind side to score a try that again Whittingham converted from a difficult angle.
The third try came just before the break. Bedwas looked to be the ones who would score as they drove a five metre line out at the line. Cardiff's defence though was solid and when the ball was moved wide a long looping pass was picked off by Richard Smith who went the length of the field to score a try that Whittingham converted. Bedwas did get two late penalties to give them a sniff at the end of the first half but it was the Blue & Blacks that went in 27-13 up.
The second half saw Bedwas mount a comeback challenge. Lewis Hudd score ten minutes into the half and Powell added a penalty to give them hope, but the Blue & Black were in charge of the game and it was no surprise when the bonus point try came. The Cardiff back three, who had been a threat all game set up a position it he home half and when Harry Davies went through a hole Smith was on hand to take the pop pass to score. Whittingham added the conversion to seal the game and the bonus point win.
Cardiff now entertain Ebbw Vale next Friday with the Steelmen having qualified for the play offs with their win against Llanelli.
