Connacht must make Treviso opportunity count

Connacht Rugby must grab a golden opportunity to move further up the Magners League ladder when they host Italian side Treviso at the Galway Sportsground this evening (7.05pm). Having leapfrogged Glasgow with a five-try winning display two weeks ago, Connacht now have the chance to repeat that feat over tomorrow’s visitors Treviso. The Italians, with seven wins this season, are just two points above Connacht, and coach Eric Elwood says his side must make it count when the two sides meet. “We have an opportunity and hopefully we will take it. Last weekend against the Ospreys we didn’t, but now we must bounce back,” he says.

Connacht look to upset Munster on St Stephen’s Day

Connacht will be looking to get back to winning ways in the Sportsground on St Stephen’s Day when they take on Munster in the Magners League, but Eric Elwood’s charges will have to do so without the services of their inspirational captain John Muldoon. The 28-year-old Connacht forward suffered another injury in a season that has been blighted with setbacks. In Connacht’s Amlin Challenge Cup defeat at home to Harlequins the Portumna native broke his arm, it is the second time this year he has suffered from a broken arm, he broke it against New Zealand in the first of the summer tour tests in the southern hemisphere. However it is hoped that the break is not as serious as the one he sustained on international duty and he will be back in action in number of weeks as opposed to months.
