Connacht had posed little threat before Niyi Adeolokun touched down, the winger scrambling over after Jack Carty’s long pass created the opportunity following a catch-and-drive move from a penalty.
Carty added the conversion and was also on target with a penalty attempt, putting his team in striking distance. However, Edinburgh held their nerve in the closing stages to secure a hard-fought 17-10 win.

Ospreys had won two from two at the start of the new campaign but a much-changed side were thrashed 49-13 away at Munster.
Joey Carbery marked his debut by scoring while hooker Rhys Marshall crossed for two tries for the hosts, who wrapped up a bonus point before the break.
