CONNACHT’S IMPRESSIVE WINNING start to the new season came to an end in Glasgow tonight.

The western province started their campaign with three wins on the trot but a fourth in a row proved too much for Pat Lam’s side in this shootout.

They did score three tries but ultimately came away without a losing bonus point as their Scottish hosts crossed the whitewash on five occasions.

Glasgow were 17-7 up at the interval at the Scotstoun Stadium with Stuart Hogg and Henry Pyrgos having scored tries in the first period; Dave McSharry touched down for Connacht.

Hogg again got over for a second half-half try however as well as, DTH van der Merwe and Mark Bennett.

Lam will have had hope thanks to a penalty try and a Darragh Leader effort but he eventually ended the night empty handed.
