Pre-season friendly: Cardiff Blues 17-24 Exeter Chiefs
Cardiff Blues lost 24-17 to Exeter Chiefs in a pre-season friendly at the Arms Park.
Tries from Jack Arnott, Will Chudley and Sam Simmonds helped the impressive Chiefs build a 24-7 half-time lead.
George Watkins scored for the Blues in the first-half, before Chris Dicomidis and Ellis Jenkins crossed during a late rally from the hosts.
But it was in vain for the Blues, whose new director of rugby Mark Hammett watched from the stands.
