What a way to spend a Saturday afternoon.  A Challenge Cup semi-final on Irish soil looks unlikely after the draw but we’re probably getting ahead of ourselves.  Connacht are in the quarter-finals and a win next week will bring that to the Sportsground.

We’ll have reports shortly on the game.  Glad you joined us!  Good Day!

RESULT! WORCESTER WARRIORS 24-24 CONNACHT

They’d chances at the end to win this but were chasing the bonus point.  But they do top the group and a quarter-hour final place secured.  Might have to wait until next week to make that a home tie.

European Action returns and Connacht are on the brink of a Challenge Cup quarter-final place.  A win (only their 3rd in England out of 23) will not just send Kieran Keane’s men into the last eight, but will also guarantee the Sportsground will be rocking in April.

Connacht have beaten Worcester Warriors in their last four meetings including a 15-8 victory in October.  And they did win 26-21 in their last visit to the Sixways Stadium in 2009.  Can they keep that run going?
