What a game and what a result as Connacht snatched a win from the jaws of defeat thanks to a late try from replacement forward Robin Copeland.
A slow start to the game saw the first try from a snipe close to the line from Caolin Blade in the 30th minute. Gerbrandt Grobler responded 3 minutes later after an extended attack in the Connacht 22 as Connacht lead 10-7 at the break.
Mark Atkinson finished off a fine try in the 50th minute before Gloucester went further ahead thanks to a sensational try finished off by Lewis Ludlow before Atkinson scored another four minutes later thanks to a sloppy pass by Kyle Godwin.
Gloucester looked well in control and heading for a win before Shane Delahunt put Connacht back in it from a maul before Connacht snatched victory from a try from inside their our 22 which was finished off by Copeland.
