Fresh from their first bonus-point win over Zebre and back-to-back Pro12 wins, Connacht will go for the hat-trick when they welcome Treviso to the Sportsground on Saturday (5pm).
A win this weekend could see Connacht climb to eighth place in the standings and after tries from Rodney Ah You, Kieran Marmion, Eoin Griffin and a penalty try earned the win in Italy, confidence will be high in the squad this week.
The destructive ability of the front-row of Denis Buckley, Jason Harris-Wright and Rodney Ah You will please coach Pat Lam and as well as the penalty try, Marmion’s try came directly from that dominant facet of the game.
The last few weeks have not been pleasant for Treviso and they followed up their 75-7 loss to the Ospreys with a heart-breaking 14-12 defeat to Ulster last weekend. Connacht would be delighted to match the result of their northern neighbours on Saturday, and victory could point Lam’s side in the right direction for a good finish to the season.
