Connacht hold off Treviso in Pro 12 League

Connacht held off a late rally by Benetton Treviso in their Pro 12 League opening match to win 9-11 in Italy.

There was a slight sense of grudge match around Saturday’s clash between Trevisio
and Connacht, after the visitors were an early victim of the Italian side’s
debut Celtic league campaign.

The two sides appeared very easily match and it was ultimately Rodney Ah You’s
try in the second half that marked the difference between the two sides despite
a valiant effort from the venetians.
