Four tries from forgotten winger Tom James helped the Cardiff Blues pick up their first points of this season's LV= Cup in a 45-40 win over Harlequins.

James, seemingly ignored in the search for a successor to retired Wales legend Shane Williams, was clearly keen to impress, seeking out opportunities all over the pitch.

But with a youthful Harlequins side finishing strongly, it was the faultless kicking of returning New Zealander Ben Blair which proved the difference as each side crossed for six tries.

Luke Hamilton and Macauley Cook also crossed for Cardiff, with Blair kicking a penalty and six conversions.

Ross Chisholm and Seb Stegman both crossed twice for Harlequins and Chris York and Sam Smith also went over. Rory Clegg converted three and Benjamin Urdapilleta added another.
