Port Elizabeth - The Cardiff Blues convincingly beat the Kings 45-12 in their PRO14 clash in Port Elizabeth on Saturday.

After an improved performance in their loss to Munster last weekend, the Kings were hoping to produce a shock and get just their second win of the season, according to the sarugbymag website.

Those hopes were very quickly snuffed by Cardiff as they raced into a 14-0 lead in the first 10 minutes and never looked back.
