Keatley inspires Connacht romp

Connacht scored four tries in a 40-17 Magners League rout of Newport Gwent Dragons as Eric Elwood's coaching reign began in fine style at the Sportsground.

Fly-half Ian Keatley stole the show by running in from the halfway line for the bonus-point score, with his conversion topping off an impressive 25-point haul.

Ray Ofisa , Sean Cronin and Keatley crossed for Connacht, who were also awarded a penalty try.

Will Harries scored Newport's only try with Matthew Jones kicking four penalties.
