Connacht overcame a disappointing Dragons side 30-11 at the Sportsground as they halted a run of four straight RaboDirect PRO12 defeats.

Although they failed to garner a likely bonus point in the final quarter, a penalty try and efforts from George Naoupu and Danie Poolman had already confirmed the Irish province's dominance.

Connacht fly-half Dan Parks stamped his mark on a scrappy game with a 15-point contribution, while replacement Jonathan Evans scored a late consolation try for the Dragons to add to Tom Prydie's brace of penalties.
