Cardiff Blues keep Ospreys winless in LV Cup

Cardiff Blues recovered from their loss last week to Worcester by beating fellow Welsh side the Ospreys 13-21 in the Anglo Welsh LV Cup.

Cardiff lost 16-21 to Worcester Warriors last weekend while the Ospreys lose 39-16 to Leicester Tigers.

Simon Humberstone was key to Cardiff Blues’ win over the Ospreys, as the 26-year-old Englishman scored 11 points with the boot including a drop goal in the 73rd minute.

The Ospreys had lead 13-11 at the break thanks to a try from inside centre captain Jonathan Spratt and additional points from the boot of Matthew Morgan.

But it was the Blues who came from behind to triumph thanks to Macauley Cook’s late try, before Humberstone did the rest.
