Connacht to play Munster friendly at Thomond Park
Connacht Rugby is pleased to confirm that the pre-season friendly against Munster Rugby will be played at Thomond Park on Friday August 21st at 7:45pm.

The move to the Limerick venue is to coincide with the World Club 7s also taking place at Thomond Park and in which Connacht will be entering a sevens team for the first time.

Tickets, purchased here, for the World Club 7s tournament that starts at 1pm on Friday will see a Connacht 7s side, made up of senior, Academy and club players, pitted against club sides from all around the world as well as teams made up from Munster, Ulster and Leinster.
