Niyi Adeolokun's sensational try one of the highlights of Connacht's memorable Pro12 win

An incredible piece of individual skill.

NOT ONLY DID Connacht create history this evening but they did so in style.

Tries from Tiernan O’Halloran, Niyi Adeolokun and Matt Healy helped the western province seal their first ever Pro12 title with a 20-10 victory over Irish rivals Leinster at Murrayfield.

Pat Lam’s men were making their maiden final appearance, but showed few nerves as they produced some stunning running rugby to deservedly down the four-time champions.

Fullback O’Halloran set them on their way with the opening try after 13 minutes.

And Adeolokun continued his rich vein of form with an unbelievable solo effort ten minutes later, before AJ MacGinty converted a penalty.
