Connacht will travel to England in less than two weeks to face either Northampton Saints or Gloucester in the Champions Cup play-off semi-final (fixture details to be confirmed).

Having finished seventh in the Premiership, Northampton currently occupy England’s play-off semi-final spot but will be replaced by Gloucester if the Kingsholm outfit can overcome Stade Francais in the Challenge Cup final on Friday night in Edinburgh.
