Mulvihill Wants Clinical Blues

John Mulvihill has called on Cardiff Blues to be more clinical following their defeat against Glasgow Warriors at the weekend.

The Scottish outfit moved above the Blues into second place in Pool Three of the Heineken Champions Cup thanks to an impressive bonus point victory at Cardiff Arms Park.

Mulvihill was quick to praise the Warriors for their quality, but was also pleased with the effort of his side, believing the result could have been different had they taken their chances.

“Glasgow are a really good rugby team, who have played good rugby all year,” said Mulvihill. “The first five minutes, where they scored 12-points, we just didn’t cope with that.

“We had great preparation during the week, and our training on Friday was brilliant. The captain’s run yesterday was the best we’ve had so far this season.

“But we needed to carry that into the first few minutes of the game. After that it was a good contest.

“We had 10 line breaks and scored once, and they had six line breaks and scored four times. They were clinical when they got into the back-field.

“We created a lot of opportunities, but didn’t finish them off. Even towards the end of the game, when there were a few passes that went out of the tackle and into the opposition players’ hands.”
