Jason Spice coathangers Joe Maddock

Jason Spice coathangers Joe Maddock

Cardiff Blues progressed to the EDF Energy Cup semi-finals after a well deserved 24-18 home win over Bath in Cardiff on Friday night.

In the second half Bath were awarded a penalty try after wing Joe Maddock was prevented from scoring a try. The resultant kick conversion was pretty interesting too.

It all came about from a fantastic passage of play, sparked by the ever impressive kiwi winger Joe Maddock who streaked through the line of defence and looked set to score a fairly simple looking try.

As he stepped inside the covering defence though, it was another kiwi, Jason Spice, who stuck out an arm and caught Maddock around the neck, sending him spiralling to the ground.

The referee, Nigel Owens, awarded a penalty try but decided against the yellow card as he felt the tackle from Spice was accidental.

Maddock, who was probably still a bit dazed following the incident, had his kick charged down from directly in front of the posts, as Richard Mustoe shot off the line. An interesting clip, with some perhaps thinking that Spice should have been yellow carded too. Opinions will vary no doubt.
