Edinburgh 14-6 Cardiff Blues
Dan Pearce | 03 March 2020
Cardiff Blues fell agonisingly short in a bid for some unlikely competition points as a last-gasp kick saw us suffer an eight point defeat away at Guiness Pro14 Conference B leaders Edinburgh on Friday night. It was less than ideal preparation for the game, it's fair to say, with the squad only...
