Following Connacht's first defeat of the 2014/15 season at the hands of Glasgow Warriors, Pat Lam's men were straight back to work in Galway on Sunday ahead of the Cardiff Blues' visit to the Sportsground this Friday night.
All roads lead to the Aviva Stadium on Saturday as Leinster and Munster clash in another eagerly-awaited interprovincial derby. Round 5 of the GUINNESS PRO12 also includes home fixtures for Connacht and Ulster on Friday night.
In order to facilitate fixture schedules in the Top 14, the Aviva Premiership and the GUINNESS PRO12, the Board of EPCR has agreed to revise the qualification play-off format for the 2015/16 European Rugby Champions Cup.
Connacht's winning run in the GUINNESS PRO12 came to an end at the hands of Glasgow Warriors who are now just one of two unbeaten teams in the league. As well as their fourth successive win, the Scots also secured a try-scoring bonus point having crossed the line on five occasions.
Two of the GUINNESS PRO12's in-form, unbeaten teams, Glasgow Warriors and Connacht, will collide on Friday with Pat Lam's men bidding to become the first visiting side to win at Scotstoun Stadium since last November.
The first interprovincial derby of the 2014/15 campaign sees high-flying Connacht entertain reigning league champions Leinster. Should the hosts triumph, it will be the first time they have won three successive matches at the start of a season.
Scotland has not been a happy hunting ground for Connacht, with just one win in their last seven visits, but Pat Lam's men are well capable of getting a result against Edinburgh on Murrayfield's new hybrid pitch.
