Seems a bit of a crazy time to play such a huge game for underage rugby in Connacht especially as its our only home game in the competition? Do these games have to be played on Fridays? I'd imagine a Saturday kick off could have got a good crowd. Ok you could make the senior game from the u20 game but it cuts into the working day of the majority of supporters even if you weren't that far from Athlone. I'd love to go if it was a Saturday and I'm sure a good crowd would travel to Athlone but a Friday at 4 in Athlone will act as a real leveller in terms of the crowd/atmosphere.

Don't know would it even be allowed under league rules but I wonder could they have ran with this game at the Sportsground at maybe 5 and if necessary push the Dragons game to 8, its not on TV anyway so doubt anyone would be too pushed and would still give the senior teams plenty of time to warm up for  kick off and could have swelled the attendance. Too late now of course but just wondering.

Are Connacht backed into a corner or is this a major PR own goal?
