It has been 3 full days since Connacht hosted Leinster on the Sportsgrounds in Galway. Desirous about that recreation for 3 full days, and I nonetheless don’t know really feel about it.

It’s a mix of disappointment and frustration, but we noticed numerous positives that give me hope for the remainder of the season. The frustration stems from numerous the positives I noticed.

Andy pal stated on the press convention that Connacht had 9 entries into Leinster’s 22 on Friday and in some way got here out of these 9 entries with no factors to point out for it.

Can solely think about how a lot that frustrates the teaching workers. Connacht discovered it fairly straightforward to interrupt into Leinster territory however when it got here right down to the enterprise finish of scoring factors they failed.

After the sport I used to be dissatisfied with Connacht turning down three kicking makes an attempt within the first half however upon reflection it was the precise name. Nonetheless I consider taking factors isn’t a foul thought, however Connacht’s recreation plan was clearly to maintain the ball in Leinster’s half and pressure a mistake that they might capitalise from. It’s a wise recreation plan and was one of many causes Connacht saved a formidable Leinster assault to solely ten factors for the sport and solely three factors for the final 78 minutes.

 As a Connacht fan if you happen to advised me Leinster would solely rating ten factors, I might have stated Connacht would win simply sufficient. Nonetheless, this season’s Connacht appear to be the other of final season’s Connacht. Final 12 months Connacht had no concern scoring and scoring effectively however they had been very leaky on the again.

Connacht this season have the bottom factors conceded of the underside six within the desk but additionally have the bottom factors scored in all the league.

Zebre who’re at present backside have scored forty-four extra factors than Connacht in 5 video games. That could be a massive quantity and never one thing Connacht followers would have anticipated coming into the season.

Deep down nevertheless I consider that that is the better downside to repair. If this pattern continues and Connacht can proceed to turn into stingy then I’ve little question the attacking aspect of the ball will repair itself. Connacht have an excessive amount of expertise within the again line for them to not be scoring a number of instances a recreation. Now we have seen a number of instances the place one cross doesn’t go completely at hand and an assault breaks down but when that cross does go at hand its seven factors. The gamers maintain reiterating that and I consider them.

This weekends recreation is an enormous one. It’s the first mid desk staff that Connacht could have confronted this 12 months and an excellent litmus check for the place this squad actually is.

A win this weekend is already important for Connacht’s season.

One win from six is a catastrophe and an actual uphill battle for the remainder of the 12 months.

Getting that second win will place them in an excellent place contemplating the opposition they’ve confronted to date. It is not going to be straightforward however straightforward video games don’t exist anymore within the URC.
