It was a last-gasp try form Peter Sullivan that gave Connacht a 26-24 win over Ulster in the first match of the Rainbow Cup on Friday.
Ulster look all set and done for the win a few minutes earlier when Shanahan got over for Ulster with his try but it was not to be for the home side.
The home side had a 10 point lead going into the second half but that was quickly erased with two tries by Blade.
It was a great way to start the Rainbow Cup and kept any supporter on the edge of their seat for this one.
At the end it was Sullivan late try that gave the visitors the win in the first round.
