AN EXCELLENT HAT-TRICK from Fionn Carr wasn’t enough to save Connacht from an unlucky defeat away to the Scarlets in a gripping Magners League encounter in Wales. The Westerners took an early lead from the boot of Ian Keatley and played with commendable heart but were beaten 35-33 at the death after a try by Scottish international Sean Lamont.

MUNSTER MANAGED to pick up their first overseas victory in the Magners League in almost a year last night, scraping a 16-13 win over a sturdy Edinburgh at Murrayfield. A 67th-minute penalty from substitute Ronan O’Gara gave Munster their second victory in a week, as the only side so far to have won both opening games.
