Connacht have fallen off the pace in recent weeks in the Guinness PRO12 tournament, but have a chance to re-establish their top four play-off credentials on Saturday, when they play host to the table leaders, the Scarlets, at The Sportsground in Galway. The Irish Province had lost five successive matches in all competitions, and slipped to fourth position in the PRO12. However, they managed to bring that run to an end last weekend, when they beat the Russians of Enisei in the Challenge Cup in Galway by 47-5.

Galway remains a difficult place to visit, despite Connacht's recent poor run of results. Only Ulster who won 10-3 on Boxing Day, have managed to beat the home side in the last nine games played at the Sportsground. Scarlets themselves are struggling to find their best form in the RaboDirect PRO12, having won just three of their last six matches in the competition. They still retain top spot however, although Leinster who are second a point behind them, have a game in hand.

The Welsh Region have certainly enjoyed the upper hand in recent clashes with Saturday's opponents. Of the last eight games between the teams, Connacht have managed just a solitary victory, when they were successful 14-8 in Galway in November 2014.

The only defeat that Connacht have suffered in the last four rounds of the PRO12, came against top of the table, and at the time unbeaten Ospreys, who defeated them by 11-16 at the Liberty Stadium in Cardiff in Round 7. If the Scarlets can collect a victory in the West of Ireland at the weekend, they will become the first team to beat Connacht at the Sportsground in Galway in any competition this season.

Although the Scarlets have won the last five fixtures between the two teams, Connacht's last success coming back in September 2011 in Galway by 13-11, the Welshmen haven't won away from home in any competition since they beat Treviso in Italy in February. The Welsh side may be further hampered by international calls, as Wales are playing South Africa on Saturday in a fourth Autumn international.

The season has been a terrible disappointment to the rugby enthusiasts in the Irish outpost of Galway, with just two wins in all competitions to show for their efforts, and both of those coming against the Italians of Zebre, undoubtedly the weakest side in the RaboDirect PRO12 tournament. The first victory came at the Sports ground in Galway in the first round of the PRO12, ant the second was in Parma in the Heineken Cup. If Scarlets can gain a victory in Ireland on Saturday evening, then the sixth placed side can start a push to put the top four teams under pressure.

The Welsh regions have in general a good record in Galway, having come away victorious in five of the last seven clashes, and the Scarlets themselves are able to boast wins on their last three encounters with Connacht.
