The match dates and kick-off times for Connacht’s final two Amlin Challenge Cup Pool 1 fixtures have been announced by tournament organisers ERC.
Connacht will travel to the south of France to take on Bayonne on Saturday, January 15 (kick-off 8.45pm local time/7.45pm Irish time) in round 5.
And in their last game in Pool 1, Eric Elwood’s men will welcome Italian side I Cavalieri Estra to the Sportsground on Saturday, January 22 (kick-off 6pm).
Bayonne top the pool with 15 points while Connacht sit in third with six points behind second-placed Harlequins (14).
With the winners of each pool going through to the quarter-finals, it looks very unlikely that Connacht will replicate the highs of last season’s semi-final exit to Toulon.
