The Blues will run out at the Sportsground this evening fully aware of the threat Connacht will pose according to head coach Dai Young.

“We know its going to be a very trick game,” he said.

“They have spoiled a few parties already and they will be out to do that against us as well.

“It’s a unique place to play and they certainly turn it to their advantage and you never play there in real good weather.

“They are playing there every other week, so they are far more used to the conditions than anyone else.

“I think their attitude has changed this season and they have a different mindset.

“They go out to win the game rather than try not to lose it and they seem much more attack minded and have plenty more options.

“Their coaches have kicked on their attacking game this season.

“Last year, and maybe the seasons before, there was more of a cautious approach by them.

“They are a dangerous team, so we will be very respectful of them.

“They have got a proud record at home. It’s a place we traditionally struggle, so I don’t see them doing us any favours.”
