Connacht lost a competitive match at the Sportsground for the first time since April as the Cardiff Blues produced a stirring second half display in a 26-20 win in the RaboDirect Pro 12.

Well-executed tries from Tiernan O'Halloran and Mike McCarthy helped Connacht establish a 17-6 interval lead in wet and windy conditions.

But quick-fire converted efforts from Alex Cuthbert and Casey Laulala saw the Blues made a tremendous start to the second period and Dan Parks kicked them home.
