The Toyota Cheetahs will return home after three weeks on tour, with no win to show for their efforts. The Cardiff Blues took full advantage from the Cheetahs' ill-discipline and converted four penalties within 20 minutes to secure a 30-17 win after they lead with 17-14 at halftime.
The Cheetahs suffered a blow in the 15th minute as Jasper Wiese (No 8) received a red card for a dangerous charge into a ruck, and they placed extra pressure on themselves as the match progressed with a series of penalties conceded, and a yellow card to Gerhard Olivier (flanker) shortly before halftime for kicking the ball while trying to get back on side from a ruck.
The Blues secured much-needed points after failing to win since the opening round of the competition against Isuzu Southern Kings.
