Connacht v Cardiff Blues
Rabo Direct Pro 12 Round 21
Galway Sportsground

Saturday 3rd May 2014 Kick Off 17:00

This Saturday, Connacht play their final home game of the season against the Cardiff Blues. Both sides have had mixed seasons, mixing some good results in Europe with some indifferent domestic form. Neither side will be in the new European Cup next season but both will look to finish as high up the table as possible as it may be relevant for seeding for the Challenge Cup. Cardiff have picked up some decent results following the departure of head coach Phil Davies in early March and will be anxious to finish the season on a high.
