Reigning Guinness PRO12 Champions Connacht have begun their campaigns with an opening weekend victory in five of the past six seasons.

Connacht’s solitary defeat in any competition at the Sportsground last season came at the hands of Ulster in the PRO12 on 26 December.

Glasgow Warriors concluded last season with a pair of defeats, both to Connacht in Galway, and have not lost three in a row in the Guinness PRO12 for four years.

The Warriors most recent victory in the Championship was a record one, beating Zebre 70-10 at Scotstoun in round 21.

Connacht’s victories over Glasgow Warriors in May in round 22 and the semi-final ended a run of eight successive Warriors victories against the Irishmen.
