What happened last time the sides met ?
The sides last met in the Challenge cup in 2017, where Connacht beat the French side 55-10.
Brive's last win against the Irish side was in 2016, where they beat them 21-18.
What have the people said ?
Connacht director of rugby Andy Friend: “What we do know is they tend not to travel well – testament to a 41-0 beating by Cardiff – but they tend to be very proud of their home record. So it will be interesting to see what side they pick, hopefully their best because we want to play against their best and prove ourselves.”
He added: A French team at their home ground is a tough challenge no matter who we face, and Brive will be exactly that tomorrow night. I’m confident we have a group of 23 men who will meet that challenge head on in what will be a physical encounter. There’ll be a few familiar faces in the opposition that we’ll look forward to catching up with after the game.”
