Rabo Direct Pro 12 Round 15
Sunday 23rd February 2014
Kick Off: 16:30 (Irish Time)

On TV: Mediaset

Connacht travel to Parma this weekend hoping to make it 8 from 8 over the past two seasons against bottom of the table Zebre. Connacht's uninspiring win over Edinburgh last Saturday lifted them above Zebre in the table but the team will be aware that defeat on Sunday would leave an uphill struggle to the end of the season to avoid finishing bottom of the league.
