Jack Carty missed an injury-time conversion to snatch an unlikely draw for Connacht in the BKT United Rugby Championship on Friday (23rd December). Trailing by 22-8 with three minutes remaining, tries for Jarrad Butler and Adam Byrne nearly rescued a result on a disappointing outing for the hosts. Caolin Blade got Connacht's first try on the hour but they left themselves with a mountain to climb. And despite the losing bonus point, they remain in 11th place with four wins from 10 matches, and four points behind a top-8 spot. Galway Bay FM's match commentary team was Rob Murphy and Joe Healy.
