Friday Night Standout Performers

Friday Night Standout Performers
Alex Dunbar - Glasgow Warriors v Connacht
Dunbar was the standout performer in a very impressive Glasgow backline performance this evening as they cruised to victory over Connacht.
He made several breaks for a total gain of 75 metres, beating 3 defenders and throwing a few beautiful offloads.
He was rock solid in defence but the highlight of his performance came after 27 minutes when he burst through a gap in the Connacht defence and sprinted in to finish off a great try.
Jacob Stockdale - Ulster v Ospreys
The big winger was everywhere this evening, carrying for over 100 metres and made four tackles, the most out of the Ulster backline.
Stockdale showed his class to pick up a loose pass and race in under the posts which cemented the win for his side with the last play of the game. 
Conor Murray - Cheetahs v Munster 
Changed the game when he came on for James Hart in the first half. With his first touch/carry of the ball he showed his strength to barrage over the line 5 metres out.
Controlled the tempo of the game well as Munster fought back from a 17-0 deficit. He turned out to be the match winner late on with a huge kick from inside his own half to win the game for Munster 19-17.

Gary Graham - Newcastle Falcons v Sale Sharks 

The openside is just back from injury but took no time to get back into form. He put his side on the front foot with a fantastic carry out of his 22 early on, which led to a try which he finished off himself.

He managed to accumulate a total of 66m in attack, making 2 clean breaks and beating 8 players from just 8 carries. He also put in a fantastic defensive shift, making 16 tackles and winning 2 turnovers.
