I dread to think. Adding Cooney and Henderson to that injury list is depressing.

I was there with my late father the last time Connacht - or Connaught then - won at Ravenhill. Happily I won't be there for their next victory. F the FIRFU, LOGANTWAT, THE JOBS FOR THE BOYS CULTURE et al FOR BRINGING US TO THIS.

The Westies would probably regard that spelling as pejorative.

Cracker seems to be of the opinion that we're going to capitalize at the end of the game >EW

Connaught would be the pejorative one surely? The only Connaught these days is a hotel in London.

The kind of place where you'd hear someone say me too only when they want to join in the romp

At least Stewart Moore's back fit. What a baptism of fire it would be for him against Aki and Tom Farrell.

The usual English spelling in Ireland since the Gaelic revival is Connacht, the spelling of the disused Irish singular. The official English spelling during English and British rule was the anglicisation Connaught, pronounced /kɒnɔːt/ or /kɒnət/.This was used for the Connaught Rangers in the British Army; in the title of Queen Victoria's son Arthur, Duke of Connaught; and the Connaught Hotel, London, named after the Duke in 1917. Usage of the Connaught spelling is now in decline. State bodies use Connacht, for example in Central Statistics Office census reports since 1926,and the name of the Connacht–Ulster European Parliament constituency of 1979–2004, although Connaught occurs in some statutes. Among newspapers, the Connaught Telegraph (founded 1830) retains the anglicised spelling in its name, whereas the Connacht Tribune (founded 1909) uses the Gaelic. Connacht Rugby who represent the region and are based in Galway, use the Gaelic spelling also.
