Blues maintain form

Cardiff Blues extended their lead in the RaboDirect PRO12 as they coasted past Benetton Treviso 33-18 for a second bonus-point victory at the start of the new season.

The hosts introduced a promising prospect in the giant shape of 19-year-old wing Alex Cuthbert, whose touch down opened the scoring for the Welsh region before Tom James added a second.

Martyn Williams and Dafydd Hewitt added further tries after the break while Gareth Davies kicked 11 points.

Kris Burton kicked all of Treviso's points as the Italians came up short.
