Brian Collins wishes London's Connacht breakthrough didn't come against his native Sligo.

Collins came off the bench at Ruislip nine days ago as the Exiles downed the Yeats County to claim their first provincial championship win in 36 years and he admits it was a day of mixed emotions for him and his family:

"It was great that we got the breakthrough but I suppose part of me regrets that it was my home county that took the fall," he told RTE.

"I know that I'll always have the backing of my family but I know that their loyalties would have been a little bit divided.

"They would have felt a bit torn but, of course, they would be delighted that we got the win and I know that they were behind me.

"I'd be absolutely kicking myself if I hadn't been a part of this."
