Connacht stayed on the heels of London Irish in the european Challenge Cup Pool One after a comfortable 30-3 bonus point win over Rovigo at the Sportsground on Friday.

Fly-half Ian Keatley gave Connacht an early 6-0 cushion, before hooker Adrian Flavin and scrum-half Frank Murphy scored first-half tries to make it 18-0.

Stefan Basson dropped a goal shortly before the break to make it 18-3, but Connacht kicked on in the second half, and further tries from Murphy and Adrian Farley sealed the deal for the Irish, who are now six points behind London Irish in Pool One.
