Alex Cuthbert: Cardiff Blues boss Danny Wilson 'gutted' for injured Wales wing

Cardiff Blues maintain their winning start to the season while ending Glasgow's in a tense Pro12 match at the Arms Park.

Cardiff Blues head coach Danny Wilson is "really gutted" for wing Alex Cuthbert, who went off injured during Friday's 23-19 Pro12 win over Glasgow.

Wales international Cuthbert, 26, scored Blues' opening try, but was later forced off by a groin problem.

"He needs a bit of luck because his work ethic certainly deserves it," said Wilson of Cuthbert after the game.

Blues fly-half Gareth Anscombe came off after the break with a cut head and may be tested for concussion.

Cuthbert missed Wales' June tour to New Zealand after having knee surgery and last played a Test in March, the Six Nations defeat by England at Twickenham.

Anscombe, 25, has made eight Wales appearances as a utility back since arriving from New Zealand side Chiefs.

Wilson added: "Alex scored a great try and was doing really well before he got injured and, fingers crossed, it's just short-term.

"Gareth's cut looks a bit of a nasty one - a bit of an error at the base of a scrum for us that led to it - but he has some stitches in his head and I'm sure it will be a short-term recovery, hopefully without concussion.

"We'll wait and make those assessments at the start of next week."

Unbeaten Blues travel to Zebre next Saturday, hoping to avoid a repeat of the 26-15 reverse they suffered there in October.
