PRO12: Connacht win to go back top

Connacht returned to the top of the Guinness PRO12 table as they came from behind to earn a bonus point in an entertaining match at Newport Gwent Dragons.

First-half tries from wing Matt Healy and fullback Tiernan O’Halloran and touchdowns after the interval from No.8 Eoghan Masterson and centre Bundee Aki, plus three Craig Ronaldson conversions, saw Connacht home.

The Welshmen led 21-14 going into the last 12 minutes after centre Adam Hughes and wing Ashton Hewitt crossed the Connacht line, while fly-half Jason Tovey landed a penalty and his replacement Angus O’Brien booted a conversion and two penalties.

Connacht are now four points clear of second-placed Ulster — who host Glasgow on Friday night — and five in front of the Scarlets, who face Edinburgh.
