A trip to Exeter marked game eight of Connacht's season and it didn't go to plan as they succumbed to a five try to one 33-13 defeat in round two of the European Challenge Cup. It's only a second defeat of the campaign and came as Pat Lam managed his squad carefully ahead of next Fridays Guinness Pro 12 clash away to league leaders the Ospreys but the drop off in performance level will be a cause for concern. As usual, Craggy Island rugby were on hand to document the day. Galway Bay FM co commentator Joe Healy and Connacht Clan member Dennis Laffey are on the pod this week joining host Rob Murphy. We hear from Rob Walrand of BBC Devon, and we hear from a host of supporters of both teams as Dennis Laffey took the recording equipment around Sandy Park, before during and after Saturday's game. Finally, we have Pat Lam's thoughts on the result and what is up next.
