THE RETURN OF the Pro12 has come and the champs have already been toppled, after a high-scoring opening weekend of rugby.

If you missed any of the action, here are highlight packages of all the Irish province games.

Reigning champions Connacht were the only Irish team to miss out on points after the opening round, with a heavy defeat to Glasgow Warriors on Saturday.

But there were dream debuts for Joey Carbery of Leinster and Rob Lyttle of Ulster, who both scored two tries each in their teams’ opening weekend victories.

Munster head coach Rassie Erasmus also got his Pro12 life off to a perfect start with a 23-13 win over the Scarlets.
