Last-gasp Connacht stun Gloucester
SHARE

MATCH REPORT: A last-gasp Robin Copeland try made sure Connacht bagged a hard-fought 27-24 Champions Cup victory over Gloucester on Saturday.

The Cherry and Whites seemed to have this wrapped up as they went into the final five minutes with a 24-13 lead, but Connacht stunned the visitors with two converted tries, the second with no time left on the clock, to snatch the win.

It was an error-strewn performance from Johan Ackermann’s side, who had to defend valiantly to stay in touch at half time after a tough 40 minutes when they were playing into the elements.

Gerbrandt Grobler’s try kept them in touch at the break, with the scoreline just 10-7 to the home side. Mark Atkinson’s interception try seemed to jump-start the performance, although Connacht hit back with a penalty from Conor Fitzgerald and a 13-12 lead.

But the Cherry and Whites then took control as tries from skipper Lewis Ludlow and a second from Atkinson seemed to have secured the win.

However, with Ludlow in the sinbin, Shane Delahunt finished off a catch and drive, the conversion making it 20-24 before the home team attacked from their own 22 and created an opening for Copeland to romp home and send the home crowd into raptures.
