Connacht v Southern Kings: All You Need To Know
After two weeks of intense Heineken Champions Cup action, it's back to the Guinness PRO14 this week as South African side the Southern Kings visit The Sportsground.

Here's all you need to know about this Round 7 encounter:
When’s the game?

Kick-off is at 5.15pm this Saturday 30th November at The Sportsground.
What’s the state of play so far?

Connacht sit in 4th place in a congested Conference B after 4 wins from 6 games, while the Kings' sole victory so far has come away to the Ospreys.

Amongst our rivals there's two other big inter-conference clashes with Munster taking on Edinburgh and Benetton facing Cardiff, while elsewhere Scarlets travel to Ulster.

How’s our recent record against them?

Connacht have won both meetings with the Kings since they joined the PRO14 in the summer of 2017. The first came in September of that year when we ran out 32-10 winners, and that was followed by a 31-17 win in South African this day last year.
How will the two teams line up?

The Connacht squad for the game will be announced on all our channels and website shortly before midday this Friday.
Are tickets still available?

Yes there is limited availability in the Main Stand and general availability in the Bohermore and College Road Ends. You can also purchase a Clubhouse Hospitality ticket which gives you access to the Clan Stand and other benefits like food and drink, match programme and pre/post game entertainment.
