Disappointment for Connacht as they come up just short against Leinster.  They’ll stay fifth place in Conference A of the Guinness PRO14 before their next ‘derby’ outing in Thomand Park against Munster on Saturday.

We’ll  have a selection of match reports from today’s game available shortly.  And to see the up-to-date table, just click HERE.

RESULT! LEINSTER 21-18 CONNACHT

Despite 28 phases of play in the closing moments and getting within three metres of the opposing line, Connacht can’t get the match saving score as Leinster’s defence hold out.  Disappointing after a gallant effort!

Welcome to our Match Tracker on New Year’s Day as Connacht go in search of a first competitive win in Dublin since 2002.  Leinster have been beaten only twice this season but Kieran Keane’s men will look to add to their stunning victory over Ulster on December 23rd and get a fourth consecutive victory.
