Connacht Rugby will take on Edinburgh at the Sportsground this Saturday, February 15th, kick off 5pm.

With a break in 6 Nations and this, the first Connacht home game in five weeks, the team are looking forward to running out to a packed Sportsground.

The round 14 fixture is not on TV so the only way to get in on the action is to get down to the Galway stadium. Tickets start at just €20 for adults and its €5 for all juniors. Click here to purchase tickets online.

Tickets can also be purchased from the Connacht Rugby office and from Centra and SuperValu stores province-wide.

Edinburgh Rugby have not played in the tournament since St. Stephens Day having suffered two postponements in away games due to waterlogged pitches.

The Scotsmen have won just once on the road this season: 16-10 at Gloucester in the European Cup in December.

The last eight fixtures between the two sides have been evenly split with four wins apiece, with Edinburgh winning by the narrowest of margins on their last visit to Galway in round 10 last season. The men in green will be looking to avenge that one-point loss last season as well as this season’s poor defeat at the hands of the Scottish side at Murrayfield.

Connacht v Edinburgh
At The Sportsground, 5pm.
Referee:
 Claudio Blessano (FIR, 5th competition game)
Assistant Referees: Olly Hodges, Mark Connolly (both IRFU)
Citing Commissioner: Wayne Sheridan (IRFU)
