Connacht-  16

Glasgow Warriors- 11

Two disallowed tries and a yellow card to Rodney Ah You weren't enough to halt Connacht from reaching a first ever Pro12 final after a tense affair in Galway.

Eoin McKeon and Niyi Adeolokun were denied tries in either half, but they managed to score enough through the boot of AJ MacGinty and a legal score from the winger in the first half. 

Connacht took a well deserved 10-3 lead in at the break thanks to Adeolokun who scooped up Bundee Aki's grubber through to shake off two tacklers and cruise over the line. 

 The second half proved a tense affair with leone Nakawara touching down early in the half, while the boot of Duncan Weir kept Glasgow in touch. 

However, they couldn't find a way to take the lead, much to the delight of the home crowd, who erupted in cheers after the final whistle.
