Cardiff survived a late onslaught to secure a narrow 17-16 RaboDirect Pro12 win that capped a dismal few days for Edinburgh coach Michael Bradley, who learned in midweek that his contract with the Scottish outfit will not be renewed next season.

The result hung in the balance right to the final whistle as the hosts sought to overturn a single-point deficit, but ultimately they were unable to convert pressure into points and repeat the win they had posted in the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign.

The visitors owed their victory to an impressive man-of-the-match performance from Rhys Patchell, who created a try for Michael Paterson and was on the mark with four penalties. The hosts bagged a try through Willem Nel, converted by Gregor Hunter, who also booted two penalties, while his replacement Harry Leonard slotted one.
