Bath beat Cardiff Blues in Anglo Welsh LV= Cup

Bath scored four tries on their way to a 24-13 Anglo Welsh LV= Cup victory over Cardiff Blues at The Rec on Saturday.

Bath booked their place in the semi-finals with a game to spare thanks to a
bonus-point win.

The five points, along with Sale’s defeat of Worcester, means Bath have an
unassailable lead at the top of Pool 3.

In heavy wind and rain, the hosts scored twice in each half with their punishing
driving maul laying the platform for three of their tries.

The Blue were well beaten but replied with a well-worked consolation try for
full-back Dan Fish in the dying minutes.
