Zebre have kicked a penalty to the 22 and go on the rampage with a 10-man driving line out. They cross the whitewash but are held up

2018-02-25 13:09:17

The scrum holds strong and Palazzani snipes for the line but he is held short. A phase later Zebre are held up again

2018-02-25 13:11:13

9' The Italians are reward with a penalty and opt to scrum again

2018-02-25 13:11:55

2018-02-25 13:13:25

Derick Minnie picks up and goes blind but he is well tackled by Olly Robinson, who then goes in for the jackal and forces a huge penalty.

2018-02-25 13:14:47

Huge defensive steel displayed during that period of pressure. Jarrod Evans clears

2018-02-25 13:37:35

It looks like Aled Summerhill has claimed a try after winning the race to a kick through to the corner.

2018-02-25 13:38:51

Frank Murphy taking his time reviewing this. The home crowd say no try and the Irish official agrees

2018-02-25 13:46:12

The second half is back underway with Cardiff Blues leading 10-7 in bitterly cold conditions in northern Italy

2018-02-25 14:00:22

Anton Peikrishvili is so cold he is doing some sort of knee raise dance as he waits for the scrum. Must be a Georgian thing!

2018-02-25 14:01:46

Venditti causing problems as he comes in field but Cardiff Blues hold on

2018-02-25 14:02:54

The Italians are causing some problems now, keeping the ball alive with some lovely offloads.

2018-02-25 14:05:02

A huge try-saving tackle from Rhun Williams who throws himself into contact to clatter Di Giulio into touch following a neat cross-kick

2018-02-25 14:18:33

Evans' penalty is on target but falls agonisingly short. 7-10

2018-02-25 14:20:36

Quick hands give Lane half a chance but he is unable to break through.

2018-02-25 14:21:06

Cardiff Blues continue in attack but the ball is lost.

2018-02-25 14:21:24

60m | Brad Thyer comes on to replace Rhys Gill

Still leading 10-7 after 69 minutes

2018-02-25 14:33:05

James Down has come on for Damian Welch. Not quite sure when but his clean shirt would suggest in the last minute

2018-02-25 14:34:01

Zebre have a penalty and go to touch but they are penalised for crossing.

2018-02-25 14:35:23

Lovely kick from Jarrod Evans puts Zebre deep inside their own half. Playing in the right area now with a big six minutes remaining

2018-02-25 14:38:16

Ellis Jenkins with a sensational tackle and jackal that forces a Zebre knock on at the breakdown

2018-02-25 14:39:27

The game has opened up with lots of errors now but it is all deep inside the Zebre half with the clock ticking down.

2018-02-25 14:42:36

Less than two minutes remaining and the Blues now have a scrum just outside the Zebre 22.

2018-02-25 14:45:40

Full-time! Zebre 7 Cardiff Blues 10. Not pretty but that is a massive win!
