Blues snap losing run
Cardiff Blues ended a three-match losing streak as they secured a 37-26 bonus-point victory in their RaboDirect PRO12 clash against Aironi.
The Welsh side led 20-11 at the break thanks to tries from Dafydd Hewitt and Chris Czekaj and 10 points from Ceri Sweeney's boot.
Wing Sinoti Sinoti had crossed early on for the hosts, with Naas Olivier kicking two penalties, and they added second-half scores from Nick Williams (two) and Gilberto Pavan to earn a bonus point of their own.
But the Blues made the win safe with Czekaj's second try and a Xavier Rush score securing the five points, Sweeney adding the conversions and a penalty for a personal 17-point haul.
