Bath Rugby turned on explosive display and sent Cardiff Blues back to Wales pointless, final score 29-19.
A wet and windy Guy Fawkes Friday evening set the backdrop for Bath's first encounter in the LV= Cup. A dedicated Bath crowd of 11,911 (the second ever largest crowd in the Club's history) filled a sodden Rec with the sound of fireworks going off all around the city.
