5' Blues have been awarded a penalty at the breakdown, Navidi making a nuisance of himself, as he does. Anscombe's gonna have a crack at the three points.

My bad, Jarrod Evans has the kicking duties for Cardiff, and he puts it through the posts to give his team an early lead. PENALTY to Blues.

7' Dangerous grubber kick by Gloucester bounces - just - into touch before the Cardiff try line. It was being chased by two Cardiff players, but Gloucester were hot on their tail.

8' Navidi has left the pitch holding his arm. Cardiff will miss his breakdown poaching. Is that a try for Gloucester?! Magnificently done if it's confirmed!

Yes it is. TRY for Gloucester! They were sweeping forward after winning a lineout on the Cardiff 22, and after a few drives at the line were just about held off, a perfectly weighted crossfield kick was caught and touched down by Trinder. CONVERTED from the touchline by Twelvetrees.

13' Blues have an attacking opportunity with a lineout on the Gloucester 22, but are making slow progress. The Gloucester defence is holding up well, but here's a chance down the wing!

13' A couple of offloads creates a hole, which Blues sneak through, and MAY have touched down in the corner! TMO to check whether the ball was in touch...

It was, and it was also dropped. Gloucester lineout on their own 5m line...

14' Gloucester's exit is unconvincing, a box kick going only as far as their own 22, and Cardiff can have another go. Playing with a penalty advantage now, and they'll have the penalty when a crossfield kick goes straight into a grateful Trinder's arms.

PENALTY for Blues. Easy kick.
