Lam fuming after late defeat

Coach angered by loss to Brive

Pat Lam bemoaned Connacht’s inability to close out a game following his side’s 21-18 defeat away to Brive.

John Muldoon’s second try of the Challenge Cup clash, arriving with two minutes remaining, appeared to have ensured that the Irish side would at least bag a draw.

However, following Jack Carty’s missed conversion attempt, Thomas Laranjeira’s seventh successful penalty of the night grabbed a victory for the hosts.

“It went from one to the other,” said Lam. “We dropped ball and then, off a turnover, we give away a penalty.

“We can bring the referee calls into it as well (but) we blame ourselves, because we should have been scoring – we should have been ruthless.

“We had enough chances and (but) we keep breaking down on our errors, and Brive didn’t have to do anything to get that win.”

Brive top the pool table following their win, one point ahead of Connacht, who are three ahead of Newcastle.

Lam’s side face Enisei STM in Galway in the final round of the group fixtures, hoping that a quarter-final spot is secured with the help of a Newcastle win at home to Brive.

“We should have (won), that’s how disappointing it is,” added Lam. “We blew quite a few opportunities.

“We should have been home and hosed, and already qualified. Again, we have only got ourselves to blame – that’s the reason we have not (qualified).”
