Cardiff Blues Versus London Irish In The Challenge Cup

It was 24-14 from Cardiff Blues against the London Irish. It was third win successfully by the Cardiff Blues. They clearly dominated in the second half against the London Irish. The try from the side of Blues was scored by Lloyd Williams on the 63rd minute. It was Cory Allan and Richard Smith who started off the game. In the first half both the teams were tied at 7-7.

In the first half both the teams looked puzzled doing everything wrong. After eight minutes Gareth was stuck and Anscombe made an attempt but was nailed down by the pros of Scotland. Still the London Irish kept their spirits high. There was no continuity from both the sides which was shocking from the game point of view and so as also to say that the game was not interesting in the first half. The visitors dwindled in number to 14 after the break as yellow card was shown to Jebb Sinclair.

The Blues however ensured their victory when it was five minutes left for the game to end. Last try was however given to London Irish but there was no restarting. It has been on and off from both the sides in the frequent matches that have taken place. Perseverance was seen from both the sides but the major problem was of converting the attempts to successful wins which muddled the whole situation. Common mistakes and carelessness was at the helm from both the sides in the first half.

The sides have to take a serious role if they are going to play a high intensity game as interest has to be generated from the teams and not from the spectator’s point of view if they do not play well. Nerve ending games are to be replaced with quality games.
