Rúaidhrí O'Connor - Irish Independent

Johnny Holland - RTÉ Rugby

...through tries from Shane Delahunt, Bundee Aki and Caolin Blade, (Connacht) emerged with the points to leapfrog Munster into second

Darragh Small -

" seems to physically be demanding...and I don’t know if anyone can be around long enough to play that number of Lions Tests."
