Cardiff Blues make winning start

jmcconnell 1 Sep 2006

Cardiff Blues made a winning start to the Magners League, overcoming Munster to record their first ever opening round win in Celtic league history.

The Blues had the upper hand in the first period but failed to cross the visitors’ line, only 9-3 at the break.

However with Munster having two players sent to the sin bin in the second period the Blues were able to capitalise, scoring two tries as they build a 22-6 lead before a late converted Munster try closed the gap.
