Connacht made history last season, and are one game away from doing it again this year.
The western province won their first piece of silverware in their long history last season, lifting the PRO12 title, despite being massive underdogs. It was a phenomenal achievement from a province that not too long ago, nearly went out of business.
This year they’re looking to create more history, and they’re just one game away from doing that. A win this weekend against Toulouse will see them progress to the knockout stages of the Champions Cup, and with these stats, we wouldn’t bet against them.
Connacht currently top the charts this year in European rugby’s premier club rugby competition when it comes to carries (733), metres made (3,430), clean breaks (85) & defenders beaten to date.
Pat Lam’s exciting brand of rugby is working a treat, and could see them march to a quarter final this weekend.
