Connacht's John Muldoon Points Out The Real Drawback Of Being Stranded In Russia
By Conor Neville

On Saturday, Connacht played in the European Rugby Challenge Cup in the rugby stronghold of Siberia. With their subs bench all nestled under blankets, they beat local team Enisei-STM 31-14.

The temperature was -20 C.

They were supposed to fly out of Krasnoyarsk airport on Saturday evening, but the news came through that a technical fault with the plane meant they had to stay the night in the area. As of this afternoon they are still in Moscow. The Connacht rugby twitter account has told everyone that they are due to fly back today.
