Connacht took a severe beating at the hands of Saracens on Saturday and in what some might say is a knee-jerk reaction, George Hook says that it is time to give up on Connacht Rugby.

From Independent.ie:

Spare a thought for Connacht. The win in Toulouse is now consigned to the other one-off performances in the province's history.

With a debt of almost a million euro, an average coach and an even more average squad, the future is bleak. Economic reality may bite and as was always the sensible option, Ireland should have just three professional teams.

Whatever about the financial problems, with two of the province's and Irish rugby's most exciting prospects in Robbie Henshaw and Kieran Marmion having recently signed contract extensions, the future is hardly bleak.
