CARDIFF BLUES 56 BENETTON TREVISO 8

Cardiff Blues avenged their shock defeat in Treviso with an eight-try 56-8 thrashing of the Italians at the Arms Park.

In February, the Italians picked up their first league win of the season with a 13-7 win but they never looked like repeating it as Blues climbed to seventh in the PRO12 table and maintained their hopes of a European Champions Cup berth for next season.

Josh Navidi, Ellis Jenkins, Rey Lee-Lo, Manoa Vosawai, Tom James, Dan Fish, Rhys Patchell and Kristian Dacey scored tries for Blues with Gareth Anscombe converting three and kicking two penalties. Replacement Jarrod Evans added two conversions. A try from Marco Lazzaroni and a penalty from Jayden Hayward was Treviso’s response.
