Paul Warwick of Connacht in action against The Dragons on Friday

Connacht lost out on a bonus point when The Dragons scored a late try on Friday to win by 27 - 19 on Friday. The Dragons pack exerted a lot of pressure and helped their side to a four try haul as they won in a scrappy game.

Ulster and Ireland hero David Humphreys was yet again the star as he scored all the points in a 25 - 23 win over Glasgow at Ravenhill on Saturday afternoon. His penalty in the sixth minute of injury time was enough to give Ulster the spoils in a game where the lead changed hands several times.

Munster beat Edinburgh by a point in Murrayfield. The 18 - 17 win helped them to stay top of the Celtic League, though their advantage wasn't stretched as Edinburgh stay in second. Tries from Halstead and Kelly and a conversion and two penalties from the boot of Ronan O'Gara were enough to see off a late surge by The Gunners.

Simon gets the bragging rights in the Easterby household after the Llanelli Scarlets beat brother Guy's Leinster by 20 - 18 in Stradey Park. In a dramatic game Denis Hickie capped his comeback with a try in the 86th minute to give Leinster a shot at a share of the spoils but in form Leinster fly half Felipe Contepomi saw his touchline conversion hit the post. Contempomi again contributed the lions share of Leinster points with a try a conversion and two penalties. He was unlucky not to secure the draw at the death.
