You have to win your home games and this was our best performance of the year, Powell said afterwards. It was a splendid attacking spectacle all round, and a fantastic match for the neutral. The try of the game came from a superb Ben Blair step that saw him carve through the defence before offloading to a supporting Jamie Robinson. Gareth Thomas was there to take the final pass as he crossed for a memorable Blues five pointer. As per a request, weve got all the tries up for you from this classic Heineken Cup encounter that was played out at the forever impressive Millennium Stadium.
