"We started the season exaclty the way we wanted to"

"We talked about it pre-season wanting to start fast and that's exaclty what we did"

"We're constantly growing"

"We haven't put the perfect performance or half together yet but we've managed to grind out wins so far"

"We got over the line three times in a row which we probably wouldn't have done in previous years"

"Being down at half time Pete had stern words to say, plus we had the wind at our backs for the second half but we didn't start the way we wanted to"

"We finished strong though and showed the characther of this team that we don't give up"

This Saturday Connacht are in Scotland as they face Edinurgh at the Hive Stadium.

"They are a very good side with a lot of inetrnationals"

"We're away for the first time which adds another different challenge but one we're looking forward to"
