  • Perpignan are without a win in their last four matches, their worst ever run in the Challenge Cup.
  • Connacht have won seven of their last eight away pool games in France in the Challenge Cup with their only defeat coming against Brive in January 2016.
  • Perpignan’s tally of five tries is the joint lowest so far this season (also Pau), whilst their tally of 10 penalties kicked is the highest.
  • Connacht have made just six offloads in the opening three rounds, the fewest to date.

Obrien

Sean O'Brien scores his second try of the evening

Connacht Rugby scored five tries as they gave their Challenge Cup Pool 3 qualification hopes a boost with an away bonus point victory over Perpignan.

Julien Farnoux opened the scoring for the home side with an early try, while Paddy Jackson kicked a penalty to put the French side 8-0 up.

But that was as good as it got for them, with a brace from David Heffernan and a sole score from Sean O’Brien pushing the Irish province 22-8 up at the interval.

Two quick fire tries from Manu Leiataua and Tima Fainga’anuku gave Perpignan hope at the start of the second half, but that was extinguished when Adrea Cocagi was sent off for the home side on 58 minutes.

From then, Connacht dominated and added further tries through Matt Healy and Cian Kelleher to put the gloss on a terrific away performance.

Perpignan host Bordeaux-Begles in Round 5, while Connacht take on Sale Sharks in what could prove to be a Pool 3 decider at The Sportsground.
