It was the sixth time in nine games that Con have waited until the very death to secure a victory but it was one that keeps them top of the league, one point clear of Shannon. Con led 17-5 at the break thanks to tries from Ultan O'Callaghan and Cian Mahony but Tarf came right back into in the second half scoring three tries - two from Niall O'Brien in the space of five minutes. On the hour mark, Ben Wakeley's try, converted by David McAllister, had the home side 26-22 in front and it stayed that way until Igarza's late strike.
In Templeville Road, Tommy Cregan scored two tries and was responsible for a final tally of 19 points as Shannon swept to a 34-13 victory over St Mary's. Full-back John Lacey also scored a brace of tries for the winners.
In Dubarry Park, Buccaneers survived a late Ballymena rally to emerge 23-17 winners and remain in third spot. They are seven points adrift of second placed Shannon and have in turn opened a five point gap back to Belfast Harlequins who beat Dolphin 33-16 in Musgrave Park.
Garryowen led 19-10 at half-time of their game with UCD at Dooradoyle. The students struck back however with a Phillip Bredin penalty and a try from hooker David Blaney but Alan Purcell then landed a penalty for the home side to ease them home.
In Oak Park, Andy Tallon struck with a late penalty to earn Lansdowne a share of the spoils and in Stradbrook, tries from Michael Price, Pedro Fonseco and Emmet Farrell helped Blackrock come from behind to win 27-16.
