  • 21. Edinburgh review March 2023

    What a performance and result for Connacht with a win that bounces them up to 6th with 2 matches left to play in the regular season in the URC.This match had it all and so we got Dave Finn, Niall Shiel and Linley MacKenzie to try and make some sense of the goings on that included 3 yellow cards as well as a 5th hat-trick from a Connacht player this season.We hear the post match thoughts of Andy Friend and Caolin Blade as well as some  of the Connacht faithful when we finished off the podcast recording in Murty Rabbitts.
