Last week Connacht showed amazing spirit in beating Glasgow. They fought valiantly and wouldn’t lie down as they came back against the Scottish side to get a win. That effort looked to set them up for a big few months.
When it came to Saturday against Connacht, they never really got going. Losing Finlay Bealham and Dave Heffernan, and constantly being beaten back set them up for a 22-point loss against Cardiff.
Cardiff went in 10-0 up with Amos touching down and Evans converting. Evans also kicked a penalty. Connacht were unable to break down Cardiff and looked tired.
There were some chances for the Irish side in the second half. They went to the lineout over and over turning down kickable penalties. Eventually they got over through Oliver, with Carty adding a simple conversion.
Despite having prop Dillon Lewis yellow carded, Cardiff turned things around as Amos got his 2nd try in the corner. A penalty try and another touch down from Dacey gave Cardiff the bonus point win.
Cardiff Blues 29-7 Connacht
If last week was an on-day for Connacht, this was an off-day. They struggles to get going, and a week off may do them good.
