Loan watch: Edwards fires Cardiff to victory

Two Bristol Bears players were in loan action over the weekend, with Ryan Edwards starring for Cardiff Blues and Joe Batley featuring for Leicester Tigers.


Guinness Pro 14 - Cardiff Blues 34-24 Benetton Rugby

Ryan Edwards scored on his Cardiff Blues debut as they came from behind to snatch an injury time victory over Benetton at Cardiff Arms Park on Saturday.

The Blues claimed a dramatic injury time victory over the Treviso based outfit in November and they recovered from a slow start to snatch the spoils once more.

Despite a Jason Harries try, where the hosts capitalised on an error from the visitors, they trailed by 12 points at the interval.

But they turned on the style in the second-half with tries from Garyn Smith, Ryan Edwards, Seb Davies and Lewis Jones to secure a bonus-point win.


Gallagher Premiership - Sale Sharks 36-3 Leicester Tigers

Joe Batley featured off the bench for Leicester Tigers in Friday night's heavy defeat to Sale Sharks at the AJ Bell Stadium.

The second row was a second half replacement as the home side cruised to victory in the driving rain.
