Connacht name team to face Zebre in RaboDirectPro 12

Updated: September 6, 2012
Connacht announce XV to take on Zebre in their first away game of the RaboDirect PRO12.

Connacht Rugby have announced their starting XV that will take on new club Zebre in the second round of the RaboDirect PRO12 tomorrow in Parma, Italy.

There are no changes to the starting XV from last week and only two changes on the bench with Nathan White taking the place of Finlay Bealham and Frank Murphy stepping in for Dave Moore.

Connacht will be looking to convert last week’s possession and opportunities into points this week. Despite crossing the tryline twice in the first half and hour, handling errors denied the home side a try which would have made all the difference playing into the strong wind. The losing bonus point from that match means the league campaign is well under way and there’s more to come from Eric Elwood’s side this week.
