La Rochelle v Connacht

European Rugby Challenge Cup Pool 2 Round 6

Saturday 24th January 2015 Kick Off 17:30

After letting a 7 point half time advantage slip at home to Exeter, Connacht are now faced with a do or die match with La Rochelle if they hope to advance to the quarter finals. A bonus point win will see Connacht progress, while a win would likely see them qualifying it wouldn't be 100% certain. La Rochelle are bottom of the Top 14 and already out of the competition but will look to find some form at home ahead of crucial Top 14 matches

Other Match Stats
La Rochelle have the worst scoring difference in the Top 14 with -136
