Cardiff 25 Ebbw Vale 26

Yes, yes, yes.

I'm not quite sure what goes on in the Ebbw Vale dressing room at half time; it may be that they drink Night Nurse, but for the 2nd week running, the 1st 20 minutes of the 2nd half were an unmitigated disaster as Cardiff ran in 25 points without reply.

Alternatively, it could be that they play Monopoly, because Jamie Lewis played the best 'Get Out Of Jail' card you'll ever see. Despite working their guts out for the full game, it has to be said that Lewis's interception 10 minutes from time snatched a victory from the jaws of defeat.

That all said, what a gutsy display from the Steelmen, with fellas out on their feet at the end of the game- that's excluding the ones who were carried off.

In summary, 16-0 up at half time, then 25-16 down. A penalty back and then a converted interception try to win at what is still Cardiff Arms Park, even after regional rugby, a special place to win a match.
