Cardiff Blues great team try finished by Ceri Sweeney

Cardiff Blues great team try finished by Ceri Sweeney

The Cardiff Blues brushed aside Connacht by a record margin on Friday in the Magners League game that broke a record or two. The home sides seven try blitz in the first half blew the visitors away on a humiliating night for them at the Arms Park. Another two tries in the second meant that the final score was a complete whitewash, at 58-0.

It was Connachts biggest ever defeat in the Celtic League, but Cardiffs largest win, eclipsing the 48 point margin that they beat Edinburgh by last year. Incidentally, the record victory for any team is 62-0, which was ironically achieved by Connacht.

The try from the game weve chosen to feature came from some superb inter passing, in a move that was started by big Jamie Roberts as he bust up the midfield.

The passing after that was fantastic to watch, and despite it breaking down after a loose pass by young Leigh Halfpenny to Gareth Thomas , they remained composed and set it up again, which resulted in Ceri Sweeney going over for a great team try.

Sweeney totalled 21 points on the night through his goal kicking and two tries.

This was Cardiffs last Magners League game for more than two months, as next weekend they take on Sale in the EDF Cup opener, followed by two rounds of the much anticipated Heineken Cup.

an u-10 team would have tackled better than Connaught did. Terrible half hearted defending

So many armchair experts on here, strange how none of them are professional players/coaches.Good try despite the lowly opposition.
