Gloucester brought their form from the Heineken Cup last weekend into the Anglo Welsh LV = Cup when they beat Cardiff Blues 40-3 at Kingsholm.

The Cherry and Whites, who included centre Henry Trinder, wing James Simpson-Daniel and several experienced forwards in their XV, were always on top in front of the Shed.

A brace of tries from James Simpson-Daniel and fifteen points from young fly-half Ryan Mills were key to Bryan Redpath's side.

Peter Buxton and Tim Molenaar also crossed for the side who had earlier today announced the signing of Billy Twelvetrees from Leicester.

For Cardiff it was their third consecutive defeat in the competition as they bow out quietly.
