Watch video preview of this weekend's Heineken Cup with Brent Pope, Tony Ward and Mario Rosenstock

Win tickets to Leinster vs Northampton

BRENT POPE believes Connacht face an uphill battle to achieve their mission improbable this weekend, but the New Zealander urged the Westerners to believe they can beat Toulouse again.

Speaking during an exclusive independent.ie video in association with Heineken Star Predictor, the New Zealander hailed Pat Lam’s side for their extraordinary victory at the Stade Ernest Wallon last weekend.

But, in discussion with Tony Ward and comedian Mario Rosenstock, he warned Connacht to expect a backlash.

“The Sportsground is not an easy place to go,” Pope said. “Certainly not for a French team who, while they have proven over the years that they are one of the better travellers than others, there is still a psychological barrier to French sides performing away from home.

“But I think that because they have been dragged into the changing rooms on Monday, Guy Noves will have the stars out – although he had them last week – and they will be told in no uncertain terms ‘you’re on a budget of €35m, unless you pull up your socks here and don’t lose again you can give up’. So, it will have been a real kick in the tail.”
