Matthew Jarvis landed a monster penalty with the last kick of the game to guide Connacht to a smash-and-grab 19-16 win over Italian side Aironi.

Connacht were below par for much of this RaboDirect PRO12 tie at the Sportsground, trailing 16-3 at one stage due to a Quintin Geldenhuys try and some fine place kicking from Luciano Orquera.

Aironi were gunning for their first ever away victory, but Connacht tallied up 16 points in the final quarter - including a try from Rodney Ah You - to boost their hopes of a best-ever league finish of eighth.
