Welsh region the Cardiff Blues completed a first win of the season against Irish opposition on Friday. In the match the Blues crossed for two tries, the later coming at the death to defeat Connacht. Scoring both tries was Pumas fullback Joaquín Tuculet who played the match out of position on the left wing. The Argentine gave the Welsh region a chance of winning by scoring near the posts at the very end of the match. A conversion from Rhys Patchell saw the Blues complete a 18-17 victory. The result sees the Blues edging closer to realizing the possibility of qualifying for the 2015-2015 European Rugby Champions Cup. Tuculet has an offer to remain in Wales as he does to play Super Rugby for the new Argentine franchise.
