It is a clash of the top two in the Guinness PRO12 as Pat Lam's table toppers hope to put behind them a dismal away record to their inter-provincial rivals when they travel to Limerick on Saturday.

Connacht fans will be able to witness their team channel their inner super heroes in their brand new strip, available exclusively from Life Style Sports, official sponsor of Connacht Rugby.

The jersey is the result of a partnership between BLK, official kit supplier to Connacht Rugby, and DC Comics and is the fourth comic book hero inspired jersey from the manufacturer who recently launched Batman, Superman and Flash inspired jerseys for Ospreys, Melbourne Rebels and Queensland Reds.

Since going on pre-sale on November 18th, the super hero jersey has become the best-selling rugby jersey for pre-orders from Life Style Sports.

The jersey captures all the fine details from the new character comic suit. The armoured design was specially designed to replicate the contoured panels and tailored cut of the BLK pro jersey to give the players an all empowering jersey to wear into battle.
