Connacht head coach Pat Lam has been charged with misconduct by the Pro12 disciplinary officer for the comments he made to the media immediately after his team's 18-17 defeat to Cardiff Blues last Friday.

Lam launched a scathing criticism of the performance of the match officials after Connacht were denied their first back-to-back wins in Wales for a decade when, after 68 phases in injury-time, the Blues claimed a dramatic win after the TMO Leighton Hodge had advised referee Lloyd Linton to award a crucial penalty for the home side.
