Converted second-half tries from Sibahle Maxwane and Benhard Janse van Rensburg put the Cheetahs on course for their first win of the season, but they were unable to hold out against Cardiff’s late surge.
Just as they had done in the first half, Cardiff refused to lie down and – after a lengthy spell of pressure – found an opening for Lloyd Williams to cross.
Gareth Anscombe converted to put Cardiff within a score of victory, and four minutes later it duly arrived as Olly Robinson touched down.
Another conversion from Anscombe took his points tally to nine, helping the Blues record a 24-21 triumph in Group A.
