Gloucester edge out Connacht

Freddie Burns landed the decisive penalty as Gloucester clawed their way past Connacht 14-10 - their first win in this season's Heineken Cup.

Burns kicked the Aviva Premiership side 6-0 ahead at the Sportsground before James Simpson-Daniel and Connacht captain Gavin Duffy swapped tries coming up to half-time.

The second period was bookended by penalties from Niall O'Connor and Burns as the Cherry and Whites stood firm to pick up only their second away victory in all competitions since February.
