Connacht lost to Munster at the Sportsground last night, but those in attendance made it into the history books after they broke the world record for the most people wearing a hi-vis jacket in one location at once.

The record attempt was organised by a partnership between Connacht Rugby and Portwest as part of the 'Be Bright on Safety' campaign, which aims to call attention to the significance and responsibility of all road users when it comes to safety.

The record attempt took place at half-time in yesterday evenings encounter, with Connacht trailing their southern rivals by seven points.

Officials at the Sportsgound claim approximately 5,000 fans took part in the record attempt, smashing the previous record of 2,499.
