Edinburgh earned a narrow win over Connacht in the Magners League on Friday night at Murrayfield.

Brian Tuohy scored two tries for the Westerners with Miah Nikora and Ian Keatley adding points from the boot.

But it wasn’t enough for Eric Elwood’s men as Chris Paterson scored 16 points and Tim Visser also touched down to ensure Connacht stay second bottom of the table.

A late Connacht surge saw them earn a penalty on the five metre line but Edinburgh held out to win.
