Connacht Rugby Receive Massive Injury Boost

Just what the doctor ordered.

Connacht star man Bundee Aki is expected to make his long awaited return this weekend. The western province are set to take on Treviso this weekend in the Guinness PRO12..

Aki had been sidelined by an ankle injury, but the province says he, along with Stacey Ili (ankle), Cian Kelleher (ankle) and Eoin Griffin (chest) have been “integrated fully” into training this week.

The news will be a big boost for head coach Pat Lam as they look to make progress up the table, and secure a Champions Cup spot for next season. The champions are currently sitting in eighth position.

Aki made 12 appearances before suffering his injury set-back and now looks set to feature at Stadio Monigo on Sunday.
