Connacht v Borders


An Tarbh

Battle of the basement at the Sportsground tonight as Borders go in search of only their second win of the season.

Connacht have been boosted by the news that Johnny O'Connor and Gavin Duffy will be returning to the province next season so whether that morale boost will help the team tonight remains to be seen.

This could be the game to turn Connacht's fortunes around, they've certainly been more than competitive in their games but just lack the confidence to finish teams off, if they can get the win tonight then maybe it can be the start of something for them.
