Connacht survived a determined Beziers display to squeeze into the second round of the Parker Pen Challenge Cup despite their defeat.

In Italy, Petrarca held Colomiers to a 12-8 lead at half-time, but two tries to visiting winger Farid Sid ended their hopes and the French heavyweights romped to a 38-20 victory to add to their 37-12 first-leg win.

On Friday, Glasgow became the first British side to qualify for this season's Cup with a 38-13 home victory over Montpellier.

Rotherham's woes continued as they crashed 35-13 at Narbonne.

The Yorkshire outfit were seven points behind after the first leg, but were never in it as their French rivals scored four tries to Rotherham's one.
