Jack Carty's final minute conversion capped a sensational comeback for Connacht, as the home side came from five points down to beat Wasps in the Champions Cup.

The kick sparked delirium among the home support, as Keith Wood noted on tonight's Off The Ball: "It's bloody carnage out there!".

The reaction was symptomatic of the support Connacht have received in recent years and the passion of the fans who have followed their team all over Europe, witnessing their first Pro12 crown in their history over the summer.

As Pat Lam's side continued to create history in the West, here are some of the best images from a memorable night at the Sportsgrounds.
