Connacht's dramatic 20-18 win over Wasps in the European Champions Cup will be allowed to stand, despite European Professional Club Rugby (EPCR) conceding the line-out from which the Irish side scored a crucial try was wrongly awarded.
Referee Jerome Garces was replaced by touch judge Mathieu Raynal after he suffered a hamstring injury in Saturday's contest at The Sportsground.
And the change proved pivotal as Raynal allowed Connacht to take a line-out and continue the game despite the ball going out of play after the 80 minutes had elapsed.
Connacht took advantage of that slice of fortune - substitute Naulia Dawai went over after a rolling maul and Jack Carty nailed the resultant conversion to win the game with the final kick.
In a statement confirming the error, EPCR said: "EPCR would like to clarify an issue arising from yesterday's European Rugby Champions Cup, Round 4 match between Connacht Rugby and Wasps at The Sportsground.
"The assistant referee, who had taken over as match referee following an injury to Jerome Garces, awarded a penalty to Connacht after time had elapsed. Connacht kicked the ball into touch and from the resultant line-out, scored a converted try to win the game 20-18.
"EPCR would like to thank all parties for their understanding and would also like to confirm that the result of the Pool 2 match stands."
