...Connacht's John Hearty on the attack against Cardiff...

Connacht were unable to convert possession into points at the Arms Park on Saturday as five penalties from the boot of Ben Blair saw Cardiff to a 15-13 victory.

Full-back Blair's accuracy allowed the Blues to take their fourth Magners League win of the season. Connacht scored a try after just two minutes through winger Matt Mostyn but unfortunately a four-point lead at half-time was not enough to fight off a spirited Blues comeback.
