Connacht hope to nail play-off with win over Edinburgh

Thu, Apr 06, 2017

It is certainly not the Connacht team that took the Pro 12 by storm last season. After a poor start due to a lack of pre-season competition, Connacht looked like they were finding their championship winning form again, and then coach Pat Lam dropped his bombshell. It is hard to believe his departure to Bristol announced several months ago has not had some effect on the team. And at a time when other clubs are announcing signings for next season, Connacht is unusually quiet. Hopefully that will change in the near future.
