Connacht have a tough week ahead.
Bottom line is we must beat them or they will possibly overtake us. If I were a betting man, I would bet on Connacht losing their last three games to finish bottom below us. Two poor teams.

Neither can I but IF they did, they'd start as favourites against us at Ravers

Now 17-3.

Get the passports ready for Rumania guys.

Interestingly the Season Ticket renewals promise 3 Heineken Cup matches - what the situation if they don't deliver. Misselling ?

24 6- 12 mins left - Connacht down to 14. Deserving of much acclaim for the sheer hunger they have shown - and some excellent rugby!!

If they hold on, fair play to them. That is a weakened Connacht team and from what I saw they have played some excellent rugby, it wasn't Leinsters strongest team but any side with BOD, MOK, Jennings, Van Der Linde, Dempsey could hardly be described as weak.

Agreed.

Our only hope is that the Ulster boys are watching this match and taking notes on how to play for your shirt! :banghead:

we're fecked :(

(But Connaught/Connacht fully deserve it...terrific appetite for the game and pride in their team)
I have a cunning plan...why not just leave things as they are but tell the Brexiteers that we have left the EU? After all they believe every lie that they were told by Boris and Nigel.
