Determined Connacht defence kept their line intact in the closing stages, and saw the Dragons fall to their third successive Celtic League which leave them in fourth place.
Mostyn had sent the home side into an early lead with his try after 10 minutes, Warwick converting. The fly half added a penalty on the quarter-hour to press home the Irish province’s advantage at 10-3. Craig Warlow had kicked the visitors in front after three minutes and he brought his side back to within one point with two more successful kicks. And they entered the break with a one point lead after Gareth Baber had got over for a try – with Warwick ending the half with a drop goal.
Warwick’s third penalty on the hour and a 30-metre strike on 75 minutes saw
Connacht to a morale-boosting win which takes them equal on points with Glasgow in sixth place – but with a game in hand.
