Connacht players bundled onto Leinster plane for Challenge Cup decider

Finish the season on a high, lads, and you might get to fly on the Connacht plane next season

Pat Lam and his Connacht squad were greeted with an awkward surprise ahead of their flight to La Rochelle this morning.

The westerners are taking on the Top 14 side in the Amlin Challenge Cup this weekend and know a win would see them through to the knock-out stages. As they ambled through the departure gates, they were greeted with the sight of a plane emblazoned with Leinster Rugby logos and colours.

According to Linley MacKenzie, the journalist that took the snap, Connacht are set to confirm Mils Muliaina as captain just after noon today.
