Connacht Rugby have Kieran Keane as their new coach and we have the list of the 10 home and 11 away matches in the 2017/8 Pro 14 regular season.
Connacht will really want to qualify for the Champions Cup so they will be hoping for two wins to start the season with a bang at the Sportsground, as they face four out of the next five matches away from home.
Two things that Connacht fans will notice from the fixture list is that they have only 3 home fixtures between the 23rd of September and the 9th February (there will some very entertaining European Challenge Cup games in that time at the Sportsground) and secondly all the announced away games are on Friday except the Italian match which means travelling away will be very difficult for most fans.
