Connacht ended up having a very good weekend last week when Toulouse's match against Cardiff was called off, meaning that they went through to the Champions Cup knockout stages for the first time ever. They will face Leinster in a two-legged affair in April in what will be a brilliant showcase of Irish rugby.
However for now they have to concentrate on the URC. In their last match in the competition, they beat Munster 10-8 on New Year's day to help them climb up to eighth. They have been playing some really good rugby but just haven't been able to back it up with the result all of the time.
Glasgow sit high in fourth at the moment after not having too many of their games cancelled over Christmas. They've won their last two games in the URC quite well against the Ospreys and Dragons but weren't able to get out of the pool stages in the Champions Cup, having failed to beat La Rochelle at home last week when they needed to win to go through.
