Mid Summer review for all things Connacht Rugby

Connacht are back training, the Lions have just won the first Test against South Africa, the Champions Cup draw has Connacht taking on the might of Leicester Tigers, who will visit the Sportsground for the first time ever, as well as a first ever match against Stade Francais Paris, what a couple of fantastic trips, COVID notwithstanding, to look forward to for the fans.

The western province have 2 more Irish capped players in Caolin Blade and Paul Boyle and were brilliantly represented at the U20 level for Ireland by Shane Jennings, Cathal Forde, Oisin McCormack, Donncha Byrne and Eoin de Buitlear.

The Connacht Women get 2 home interpros this season and there is a well structured AIL season for both men and women to look forward to as well.

So plenty of green tinged chat for William Davies, Rob Murphy and Alan Deegan to sink their teeth into for the mid-summer podcast, there might even be some info on Connacht’s preseason friendlies in there too.
