Connacht dream on

Thanks for your company for a thrilling match in Galway.

FT: Connacht 16-11 Glasgow

'Connacht deserved victory'

John Beattie on BBC Scotland: "I think, on balance, Connacht deserved it. They tackled better and got through more often than Glasgow. The Warriors line-out was poor and the Connacht defence was very good. They scored three tries and two of them were disallowed. They deserved it.  It was a fantastic game and both teams lit this place up." 

Glasgow Warriors winger Sean Lamont

On BBC Radio Scotland

"It is a season's work gone down the drain. 

"We were on the wrong side of the penalty count and were just not clinical enough. 

"Credit to Connacht. They played very well and good luck to them in the final."

Glasgow inconsolable

Some of the Glasgow team are in tears. Duncan Weir in particular in his last game for the club.

BBC Sport Scotland in Galway

Connacht were sharper, had more hunger, the same real insatiable desire Glasgow had last year. They were dominant for the vast majority of the game

FT: Connacht 16-11 Glasgow Warriors

An impressive Connacht reach their first ever final. Holders Glasgow lose their Pro12 title. Connacht face Irish rivals Leinster in the final at Murrayfield a week today as the statistic remains that no away side has ever won a Pro12 semi-final.

Connacht 16-11 Glasgow

John Beattie on BBC Scotland: "That was absolutely stupid by Ah You. If Connacht lose because of that, it is just crass idiocy.  That was worse than Puafisi in the first game and it is only a yellow card."

Connacht 16-11 Glasgow Warriors

Connacht are using a blitz defence in an attempt to hold on to the lead despite Glasgow's one-man advantage.

Sin-bin

'Glasgow can still win this'

Andy Nicol on BBC Scotland: "Glasgow had to absorb so much pressure and they were very close to conceding a try, but that was a shocking decision at the scrum - it was a penalty to Glasgow, not Connacht.  But, if they are still within a score going into the last 10 minutes, there is no doubt Glasgow can still win this."

Connacht 13-11 Glasgow

Andy Nicol on BBC Scotland: "That first 10 minutes of the second half was exactly what we wanted to see from Glasgow and what we have seen in their run of nine straight wins - the inter-play, good execution, coming onto the ball at pace. But they just relaxed for a couple of minutes and allowed Connacht to get good field position, which led to the penalty. They now have to play 25 minutes of outstanding, error-free rugby to get to that 'home' final at Murrayfield next week."

Penalty

Connacht 13-11 Glasgow Warriors

Duncan Weir thumps a penalty over for Glasgow from all of 30 metres against the strong wind.

Kick-off

Connacht 10-3 Glasgow Warriors

Glasgow start the second half and have 40 minutes to fight back if they want to reach next weekend's final at Murrayfield against Leinster.

Connacht 10-3 Glasgow Warriors

Connacht are leading despite playing into the wind. Are Glasgow capable of being as clever in face of such conditions?

HT: Connacht 10-3 Glasgow

'Glasgow will be happy to only be 10-3 down'

Andy Nicol on BBC Scotland: " "It has been a poor 40 minutes of rugby from Glasgow - probably their poorest for a long time. Some of the defence was okay, but they were falling off tackles in that second 20 minutes, Connacht were finding gaps all across the park and they lost three line-outs as well. To only be 10-3 down after that, I think Glasgow will be quite happy to still be in it." 

Tom English

BBC Sport Scotland in Galway

Connacht are doing a number on Glasgow psychologically and physically. 10-3 is not a fair reflection of Connacht's dominance
