Sweeney boots Blues to win
Ceri Sweeney kicked nine second-half points to give Cardiff a 14-7 win over Zebre which ends s four-match losing run in the RaboDirect PRO12.
The Italians led 7-0 lead through Samuele Pace's try midway through the first half, taking advantage of the extra man after Robin Copeland had been sent to the sin-bin. Within three minutes of Copeland's 12th-minute departure, centre Pace ran through to score a try which was converted by Daniel Halangahu.
