No Lam to the slaughter


THIS is the time for Connacht, in sixth, to strike out for Champions Cup qualification against the club five points behind in eighth.

Pat Lam's men face the Scarlets on Sunday in Parc Y Scarlets (12.45, Live SC4).

The Welsh club will be far more inconvenienced by the Six Nations, losing the likes of Liam Williams, Samson Lee, Jake Ball, Scott Williams and Rhys Priestland.

VERDICT: Connacht
