The details for Connacht’s Junior Interprovincial series have been announced with action commencing at the beginning of the month.
Connacht begin with a home time against Leinster on Saturday, 28th April. The game kicks-off at 2.30pm in Ballinrobe while at the same time, Munster and Ulster lock horns in Muskerry.
The 2011 Grand Slam winners haven’t tasted victory since 2015. Their best result in the last two years was a 23-23 draw against the eastern side in 2016 and they only fell by one (15-14) in last year’s campaign.

However, their luck against the other teams haven’t been as good.
Seven days later (May 4th), the western province are on the road when they head to Ards RFC in Co. Down for their clash with Ulster. That game throws-in at 2.30pm. Ulster were 33-20 winners in 2016 and came out 34-5 winners last year.
The campaign concludes the following Saturday (11th away) with another away assignment against Munster. That game also has a 2.30pm kick-off and will take place in Old Christians RFC in Glanmire, Co. Cork. Connacht have only managed 10 points against Munster in the last two years losing 35-3 in 2017 and 50-7 the previous year.
