Connacht score Netherdale victory

Last season’s basement side Connacht made a perfect start to this year’s campaign scoring a valuable away win over Border Reivers at Netherdale.

Tries from Gavin Williams and Paul Warwick were crucial in the second period after the home side had led 9-3 after a scrappy first half.

However it was the visitors who took the second half initiative with Williams try, converted by Mark McHugh and although the Reivers responded with two further penalties these were negated by McHugh, with Warwick ensuring the points for the Irish province with first a drop goal and then a try, with again McHugh converted.
