Bedwas' Joe Mills goes on the attack against Cardiff.
Missed tackles, indiscipline, and a mis-functioning line-out all conspired to make this an afternoon to forget for Bedwas as Cardiff bossed proceedings from start to finish to record a comfortable 46-23 victory.
The afternoon did not start well for Bedwas as Cardiff's left wing Mike Stephens crossed wide on the left with only a minute played. Dean Gunter missing with his conversion attempt.
Bedwas rallied and with Cardiff down to 14 men following prop forward Tom Davies's sin binning, Joe Mills was driven over for an unconverted try.
Cardiff turned the screw and Dean Gunter penalty goals on 12, 15 and 21 minutes, centre Shaun Powell's try and a Gunter conversion put them in charge with Bedwas's ace goal kicker Powell only able to convert one of his own penalty opportunities to compound the misery.
Gunter added a fourth penalty just before the half hour mark before Bedwas scored their best try of the day through Rory Budina, again unconverted. Right wing Steve Cullen crossed five minutes before the interval but again the conversion was missed to leave Bedwas trailing 24-18 at the break.
It didn't take long before Cardiff extended their lead, Shaun Powell breaking through some weak tackles for a try, Gunter adding the conversion and a further penalty goal, with Bedwas's James Thomas sin binned for a ruck offence. Tom Slater's try after 61 minutes earned his side a bonus point after more poor defence from Bedwas and the game was won.
Bedwas tried to mount a comeback but James Sawyer was denied a try after being adjudged to have knocked on whilst touching down and the game began to peter out.
James Loxton added Cardiff's fifth try of the afternoon with two minutes left to play, Gunter converted and Bedwas were down and out but had the last word with virtually the last move of the game Cullen crossed out wide to earn his side a bonus point for four tries.
So the season ends with Bedwas finishing in sixth place, having a record of played 22 games, won 11, lost 11.
