The weight of Connacht's world weighs down on the broad-beam shoulders of Robbie Henshaw.

He wouldn't want it any other way against The Ospreys in The Sportsground tomorrow (KO3.0, S4C).

"I like taking that job on my shoulders. It's not easy. But, I like the leadership role that comes with it," he said.

The odds look stacked against the Westerners as they trail The Scarlets for the last remaining automatic place for the Champions Cup.

The Welsh club make their way to Benetton Treviso, who need a victory to be guaranteed of the Italian spot in Europe.

Connacht have a single point to spare over Edinburgh with Leinster due in Murrayfield.
