This weekends action in the Pro12 has three of the four provinces lining out away from home. Connacht are the first to take to the field as they travel to Cardiff to take on the Blues. Connacht are in flying form and remain at the summit of the league after a hard fought victory away to Munster last weekend. The side has 8 changes from last weeks starting line up, most notably Robbie Henshaw is absent with injury, but the westerners will be hoping to continue their good form and get their 9th win in a row. Those who haven’t travelled to the game can watch it at 7:05 this evening on TG4.
Ulster are the only province who play at home this weekend and they have announced a strong side for the encounter. Tonight they welcome Edinburgh to the Kingspan Stadium. Both sides are tied on 23 points in the table which gives Ulster the added incentive to go all out for the victory ideally getting the bonus point win. Check out this short video detailing Ulsters use of Performance Analysis and its importance to them.
Leinster have made 8 changes to their side for the trip to Glasgow. Boosted by a hard earned win over Ulster last week, Leo Cullens men now set their sights on Glasgow. This fixture has added importance as these two sides are only separated by 1 point in the league table. Although there are many changes and positional switches Leinster will be looking for a strong performance and to open a gap between themselves and their hosts.
Finally Munster travel to Newport to take on the Dragons. Both sides will be looking to bounce back after defeat last weekend. Munster lie in third position in the table and will be looking to inflict a fourth defeat in a row for their league opponents. Anthony Foley has made 10 changes from last weekend which was a difficult defeat for the side. The munster men are fancied to come away with the win and heap pressure back on the league leaders.
Each team will all be looking for a strong performance and improve their league position going into the Christmas.
Best of luck to each of our Performance Analysis clients involved and their Analysts.
