THE PREDICTION

Connacht made it back-to-back Pro14 wins since the last time they faced Benetton back in early December with a 32-17 victory over Cardiff Blues on Saturday. They occupy the “best of the rest” role in the Pro14 behind Leinster, Ulster and in their own conference Munster and this away trip to winless Benetton is an excellent opportunity to extend their gap from the chasing pack. Benetton lost their 11th Pro14 game from 11 with a comprehensive 41-17 defeat away to Scarlets on Saturday and they should be expecting a similar result at home here against a better side. As always with the fixtures involving travel in Rugby Union right now, it is worth waiting for the match to be confirmed before picking this match but if and when it does Connacht can cover -15 on the road here.
