Blue & Blacks bottom of Pool One without a win


Cardiff are rooted to the bottom of Pool One following five successive defeats in the B&I Cup this season.

In the competition opener, the Welsh outfit fell to a 23-14 loss at the hands of Bristol Rugby at Arms Park.

Despite trailing 9-6 at the half-time interval, Liam Middleton’s men notched second half tries through Academy duo Ryan Edwards and Mitch Eadie to record a win in a bad tempered affair.

The Blue & Blacks were dealt a further blow with a 25-7 defeat to local rivals Bridgend, before a tricky double header against a strong Ulster outfit.

Cardiff fell to successive bonus point defeats to the Ravens, going down 40-14 at Ravenhill, before a 34-7 reversal at Arms Park.

Cardiff slipped to a 24-14 defeat at the hands of Bridgend Ravens last weekend.

Wales Sevens and Cardiff fly half Will Thomas was a member of the EDPG group during the 2011/12 campaign, featuring for the Club in the B&I Cup defeat to Moseley.
