He'll be 33 by the end of this extension and he plays a very physical brand of rugby which takes a toll as the years pass. It is great for him and Connacht b/c they need him to compete at a high level, but I just hope it doesn't turn into another Sean O'Brien situation where the last year and more was a string of injuries, rehabbing, coming back and going out injured again.
    Key player for Connacht though, so if this was what was required to keep him, so be it. Would have been a massive blow to the province to lose a talismanic player and fan favourite like him. Shouldn’t guarantee him his place on the Ireland squad but that’s another issue.

    Delighted with this. Great that IRFU have committed to Bundee and to Connacht.

    Fainga'a has single-handedly lost his team the game there. Idiot.

    New three-year contract for Marmion. Either his agent has played a blinder and got him a pay hike or Sarries have cancelled plans for Marmz Investments Co.

    Great result for a seriously-weakened westie's team. I have always liked Marmion, but have to acknowledge that Blade looks to be playing himself into contenion for the Ireland SH squad selection. On recent form he's at least as good as McGrath.

    Brilliant stuff from Connacht. Had a load of injuries but still fronted up and played some excellent rugby. Fair play.

    Copey looked to have a fine game for a player that wasn’t meant to start. He’s someone who turns it on some days.

    23-20 Connacht penalty from Conor Fitzgerald, who had just come on. I thought they hadn't a hope before ko but delighted to be wrong.
