Champions Cup Highlights: Gloucester 26-17 Connacht

Quinn Roux would grab a consolation try for Connacht but it was to no avail as Gloucester grabbed all five points. Tom Marshall gave Gloucester the perfect start with a nice step before producing a  delightful jink, putting the hosts 7-0 up after five minutes but Connacht replied almost immediately through John Porch. Connacht would go ahead through a Carty penalty before Danny Cipriani read a Connacht pass inside his own 22 and sprinted away before handing to Louis Rees-Zammit who dived over the try line. A well-worked scrum, releasing Simpson who created the overlap and found Tom Marshall who dived over the try line for his second of the match following a Kyle Godwin yellow card. Three minutes later, Joe Simpson picked the gap in the Connacht line and that stretched the away side’s defence, freeing up Jake Polledri to find another hole and sprinted through for the bonus point try.
