Europe still calls for Lam


It would be negligent in the extreme for Connacht to go to the bother of beating The Dragons at Rodney Parade and come up short at home to Treviso on Sunday (KO5.15, TG4).

At present, Pat Lam's men hold sixth spot, the automatic Champions Cup place, in what has turned into a three-club race with The Scarlets two points behind and Edinburgh four back.

Connacht will be guided by the fact they have lost their last two in Galway to Exeter Chiefs in the Challenge Cup and Edinburgh in the PRO12.

They have a positive record against Treviso, losing just one of their last five.erdict: Connacht.
