Connacht v Leinster

This weekend see’s the Connacht Rugby team return to the Sportsground after an indiffernent run of away matches. Leinster are fresh from a narrow win against the Ospreys. They will definately have one eye on the Champions Cup semi final. This could give Connacht and opportunity to get a vital win. A full house in the Sportsground, under the lights should create a wonderful atmosphere and hopefully inspire Connacht to another famous win.
