Amazing not one Connacht person posted here, some farewell to Eric Elwood!!!!!!
Thats it for today folks. As ref George Clancy blows the final whistle it leaves Glasgow in a position for the playoffs while Connacht have failed to impress on their last match of the season. However Elwood should have many fond memories to look back on and Connacht have but him to thank for the huge success he has brought to the Western Ireland province. Don't forget to check back for highlights which will be uploaded soon!
Risky play, Connacht have been playing the ball on their own try line for the past 5 minutes. This may give Glasgow one last chance to add to the scoreboard.
Crossfield kick from Maitland is collected by Van de Merwe and a ruck is set up on Connachts try-line. Sub scrum half Matawalu picks form the back and dives over the top however the TMO is used as Matawalu fumbles the ball and is not properly grounded. Scrum 5..
With only 8 minutes to go Glasgow have lengthened their lead with a superb try from Sean Maitland. The recently selected Lions player used his speed to run in for Glasgows second try of the night.
Had all 4 Irish teams backed to win! Thought the lads might do it for Elwood
50 minutes in and Glasgow decide to change the complete front row. Lets see if this puts any change on their game plan..
Connacht will look to improve on their first half performance, and to finish the tournament with a win, to honour their coach Eric Elwood, of which this will be his last game in charge after being hugely involved with Connacht rugby for a staggering 24 years. We wish Eric the best of luck with his future and hope he remains in some way shape or form associated with the sport of which he loved so much.
After numerous phases by Glasgow from side to side and then eventually through the middle Connacht's defence held strong, to leave the half time score Glasgow 10 Connacht 3
25 minutes gone and with Glasgow 10 points ahead its Connacht who are playing with all the possession. Glasgow have a solid defence and Connacht just cant seem to find any way through..
