Connacht Rugby has a once-in-a-lifetime prize to give away to one of its loyal supporters: a one-off, specially embroidered, signed Connacht jersey to mark captain John Muldoon's 300th Connacht appearance (#Mul300) against Leinster at the Sportsground.

Muldoon became the first Irish player to represent his province 300 times in the recent Guinness Pro12 clash, and Connacht's most capped player is keen to finish off the season on a high with a win tomorrow against Scarlets.

Already Connacht have sealed a spot in the Champions Cup play-off against either a French or English side, but with Scarlets and Munster still to face, Muldoon and his team-mates will be keen to get back to winning ways this weekend.

This unique prize will be given to one of the province's loyal fans who have already purchased a season ticket for next year and anyone who buys one of the special offer early bird season tickets before 5pm on Sunday, April 30.

With a record number of season tickets already sold, make sure you pick up yours this week to make some big savings and you may just bag yourself this unique prize!

Anyone interested in purchasing a special offer season ticket should enter the draw on www.connachtrugby.ie, with available adult tickets starting at €255, enclosure tickets are available at €315, students and seniors can purchase tickets at €180, juniors at €59, while a family season ticket is available for €570 - a 49pc saving from purchasing tickets on the gate.

Meanwhile, Connacht have been busy this week with the signing of 23-year-old ex-Leinster lock Gavin Thornbury for the start of next season, while current squad members and Galway natives Eoin McKeon and Darragh Leader have been signed up to contract extensions.
