PRO14 Release Fresh Champions Cup Statement Following Connacht Mistake

Whoops.

PRO14 have released a statement confirming they made a mistake earlier today in terms of the seeding for next season’s expanded 24-team Champions Cup.

Connacht were listed as Tier 4 team with Glasgow Warriors in Tier 4 when it fact it should have been the other way round.

A very special British & Irish Lions House of Rugby show – fronted by Sean O'Brien and Alex Goode – is available now and will run for the duration of the tour. Follow and subscribe to it HERE
