Edinburgh Gunners ended Connacht's slim hopes of making the Heineken Cup qualification play-off as they ran in three tries at the Sportsground.

Connacht led 10-3 at half-time through a Tom Tierney try and a Mark McHugh conversion and penalty.

But Edinburgh hit back when Alasdair Dickinson went over and added a penalty try after good forward pressure.

The Gunners added the decisive score in the 71st minute when Marcus Di Rollo went over and Chris Paterson converted.
