Sam Norton Knight goes over for the Blues against Gloucester at Kingsholm.
Ceri Sweeney showed nerves of steel to land a last minute penalty to give Cardiff Blues a narrow 25-26 victory against Gloucester at Kingsholm in the LV= Cup.
The home side had edged in front but Gloucester infringed in the dying seconds and Sweeney stepped up to send over a 40m penalty to finish with a 16 point haul to seal a hard earned triumph.
A severely depleted Blues side saw former Scarlet second row Adam Eustace and Wales hopeful Gareth Delve score tries while Freddie Burns (2) and Nicky Robinson sent over penalties.
The Blues hit back through full back Sam Norton Knight and Xavier Rush but with former All Black Carlos Spencer sending over two penalties, it looked like the home side had done enough to claim the spoils. However Sweeney stepped up to spoil the party with his late effort to get the Blues off to a winning start.
