Cardiff Blues claimed their first RaboDirect Pro12 win of the season against Connacht thanks to the boot of young fly-half Rhys Patchell.

Patchell scored all 21 points for the Blues, who claimed their first win of the season on Friday night.

Twenty-year-old Patchell, who has already represented Wales twice this year, was nigh-on flawless with the boot, scoring six penalties and a first-half drop goal.

Connacht had a 10-9 lead at the interval thanks to wing Matt Healy's try while former Blues fly-half Dan Parks, who is now player-coach with the Irish province, converted and added a penalty.

But they faded thereafter and Patchell scored 12 unanswered points to seal victory for Cardiff at Arms Park.
