I can't send a link for some reason.
They are voting Connacht best centre partnership on Rte app.

Endorsement played f%€k all games at centre with Aki. RTÉ think that's our best pairing. For me it has to be Farrell and Aki.
Farrell was unreal last season and the start of this season.
Also we started to loose when he got injured. TF is one of our most important backs IMO


Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.

hard to argue with the two they suggested, big fan of Tom Farrell and I always had a soft spot for James Downey, was delighted to see him do well after leaving Connacht, don't think he was given enough time here. Honourable mention for Keith Matthews too. I'm too young to remember Tim Allnutt!
Nice to see Connacht being discussed in any shape or form in national media.

Bundee certainly has to be in there but I wouldn't put Endorsement beside him as he played his best rugby for Connacht at FB. Another guy who deserves a mention for being an excellent performer for Connacht was Darren Yapp. Called up to a few Irish training squads in his time and would've been capped except for the durabiliity of D'Arcy and O'Driscoll.

It’s actually Connacht’s best XV of the professional era and started a few days ago with the back three, it’s half backs today. The link won’t post for me either.

tbf the games that rh played at centre with aki were key to winning the league, that's inarguable imo. But I love farrell and I think the way he and aki work together make them an equal partnership.

Agree with Tom Farrell and Bundee as our best centre partnership. Big Big fan of Tom Farrell.
He is such a good player that he can work well with anyone beside him.
With him an Bundee though, we always look dangerous in the middle.


Hey. They laughed at Louis Armstrong when he said he was gonna go to the moon. Now he’s up there, laughing at them.
