Hot on the heals of a disappointing defeat to the defending champions Munster, Connacht can still claim their first interprovincial title in almost twenty years when they face Ulster at home (Saturday, 17th December, Corinthians RFC, 2:00). While Munster are in pole position to claim the series, leading by two points from Leinster who have six, Connacht lie a mere point behind them in third and, though they have opted for a more difficult route, they have victory firmly in their sights.
