Connacht have been in fine form in the early stages of the Guinness PRO12 tournament, and have lost just one of their opening six fixtures, and are in fifth position on the table.Where Connacht have struggled to date is in scoring tries, they have yet to secure a try-scoring bonus point despite their four victories and a draw. A total of just ten tries scored and ten conceded in six games.

In what is likely to be a highly competitive Pool, with Bayonne from the Top 14 and Exeter Chiefs from the Aviva Premiership, making up the rest of the group, bonus points may well decide who will finish first in the final rankings, and make it through to the last eight.
