    Default The Wests awake

    To be fair Connaught deserve a thread of their own. One of the greatest Irish sporting achievements, looked down upon by their neighbours, whipping boys for years and handicapped by their paymasters. The people of Connaught must be so proud, they have every right to be.

    Well done to Connaught rugby......party on!

    50:1 at the beginning of the season - a mini Leicester !!

    They definitely deserved it. I'm a Leinster fan but I'm actually glad that Connaught won. They play a better brand of rugby.

    To be fair I think any of us from the rest of the country would have done the same, and i'm not trying to be patronising but its a fantastic achievement.
