The Sportsground witnessed another night to remember yesterday as Connacht fought back from a 10-point interval deficit to defeat four-time European champions Toulouse.
Craig Ronaldson’s conversion of Bundee Aki’s 67th-minute try proved to be the decisive score, as Toulouse fell to a fifth successive away defeat in Europe for the first time in their history.
Connacht’s stirring 23-21 win over four-times European Cup champions Toulouse was years in the making, according to head coach Pat Lam.
“It shows how far we have come as a team since the last time we played them three years ago, and we expect to win as a team based on the work we do,” said Lam, following his side’s winning start to Champions Cup Pool Two.
“We are a representation of the west of Ireland, and people deal with adversity all of the time. This is just a proud day for us and our supporters. We are all about inspiring our community, that is the purpose of Connacht Rugby and there was more great inspiration tonight.”
