Connacht Team News
Connacht will be without second row, Cillian Gallagher, who picked up a shoulder injury in the previous match against Montpellier and they will also be missing a total of sixteen other players due to injury, some of which include captain, Jarrad Butler, and key players such as Tiernan O’Halloran and Kieran Marmion.
After the victory against Montpellier, manager Andy Friend discussed the challenges they would face into the build up to the Toulouse game.
Unlike most teams, we don’t charter flights so we’ll be leaving on Thursday afternoon, catching a flight on Friday morning and getting there in the afternoon.
It was interesting, I bumped into a Munster man this morning who was over at the Ospreys game and he was having a coffee at Knocknacarra coffee shop at 9.30 in the morning. I was thinking that we wouldn’t get back until 6 in the evening.
We don’t have the luxury of doing that but in a weird way, that’s actually what builds this team. It makes you have character. You’ve got to have character and get on with things and when things don’t go your way – like injuries leading up to a game – it doesn’t bother you.
