    Connacht v Dragons</div>

    Connacht missed a chance, albeit a slim one, to close the gap on the Dragons with their defeat in Edinburgh last weekend, a win would have put them in with a decent chance of overtaking them in the final standings with 2 games between the sides to come, however that looks all the more slim in the wake of last weekend.

    The Dragons can pretty much guarantee at least a HEC playoff spot with a win in Galway this evening.

    great second half from Connacht having been 10-3 down at the break, turning it around with 5 tries and the bonus point.
  4. I doubt it's a coincidence that Connacht show some attacking threat just as Niva Ta'auso returns from injury. He's been Connacht's main creative force this season and without him they've looked impotent in attack. Connacht better hope he sticks around next season. If he does they can build a backline around him, Fionn Carr (who took his try scoring tally to 8 in 17 games this season) and Ian Keatley. Some new coaches and better squad depth would help too!

    Did anyone see this? If so, did Keatley play well?
