Connacht to slay dragons

Connacht take on Newport Gwent Dragons in the first home game of the year this Saturday. After a moral boosting trip to Wales last weekend the lads will be looking to build on the win over Cardiff. Dragons have not won away from home in the PRO12 since a visit to Treviso in March 2015. The only previous time Dragons have won in Galway was 2003/04.  Let’s hope that bad run continues for at least another season.
