Weary Connacht can win out against bold Warriors

Connacht v Glasgow Warriors, The Sportsground, Tomorrow (KO 5.30) Live TG4

Eric Elwood's players very nearly built on their historic defeat of Harlequins in the Heineken Cup by taking a losing bonus-point away from Cardiff Blues.

They return to their hallowed turf to entertain, if that is the right word, The Warriors, who are riding high in third in the league. The Scots showed they fear no venue when taking away Leinster's home record in the third round in September.

But, this is a different kind of wonderful. Connacht are third from bottom, one point above The Dragons and five behind Edinburgh, in the mini-battle of the basement.

Their main concern is their limited squad. Elwood has little opportunity to rest first choice players. Fatigue could be a factor.

Verdict: Connacht
