After the excitement and drama of a rare Irish 6 nations championship success, its back to the bread and butter of league action this weekend. After picking up 14 points from their 3 previous games the league break came at a bad time for Connacht. Connacht will be hoping to continue to build momentum heading into the final section of the season but will face a tough challenge against a Dragons side who have been strong at home this season, recording 5 home successes and 2 losing bonus points from their 7 home league games this season.
