The Craggy Rugby podcast attempts to turn the table on the traditional format for rugby coverage in Ireland. We start with Connacht Rugby and work from there rather than the other way around. During the Rugby season we release a preview and review episode for each and every Connacht game in the URC and European Champions Cup. We also have a mini-pod after the team selection announcement, for each match. Not to mention the Connacht specific stats that we tweet during and after each match. We' ...

William Davies and Alan Deegan luxuriate in the fabulous debut by Mack Hansen as well as the excellence of Bundee Aki and not forgetting about a solid display by Finlay Bealham as the Connacht contingent were a major part of Ireland's destructive display in the victory over Wales in Round 1 of the 2022 6N. We also talk about the other matches in th…
 
Well that was a pretty underwhelming way to get back to the bread and butter of the United Rugby Championship.

We here the pre-match thoughts of former Connacht ba…
 
Well Connacht are certainly the great entertainers in not only URC rugby but in Heineken Champions Cup rugby, all they need to do now is to finish games as strongly as they start. A second week in a row of losing a match from a strong position but with the benefit of both a try bonus point as well as a losing bonus point will hopefully lead to more…

Connacht really did feel the full force of the backlash from Leinster after suffering another comprehensive defeat by the standard bearers in the URC.

William Davies, Dave Finn and Alan Deegan were on hand to run the rule over another disappointing trip…
 
Connacht returned after the early season URC break at the same pace as they entered it, playing some astonishingly good rugby and all the more astonishing considering the woeful weather conditions.

Wow, what a win and what an atmosphere at the home of Irish rugby for the cinderella province as they produced a wonderful performance to totally eclipse the previously unbeaten Ulster side.

It was an epic URC game in Thomond Park with Munster managing to sneak past Connacht with a late, late try after the visitors had forced themselves in front with a few minutes to go. Connacht's consistent inconsistency continues with another massive performance in Thomond Park, that's 3 one score games in a row between the sides. The ball didn't bo…
 
The only consistent thing about Connacht is their inconsistency. They had enough territory and possession in the first half to have put the game beyond the Dragons, but were given a lesson in game management in the the second half as the visitors deservedly won their first match in the Sportsground since 2004. We hear the post match thoughts of And…

We hear from a philosophical Jarrad Butler and a very frustrated and clearly annoyed Andy Friend in the first non-zoom post match interviews in yonks. Get b…
 
The first match of the season is almost upon us, but the big news is not the trip to Cardiff, it's the fact that Connacht are moving their home interpro match against Ulster in October to the Aviva Stadium on the day after the proposed lifting of all COVID restrictions.

The Craggy Crew take you through the match and discuss the big win and we hear from Andy Friend and Alex Wootton in the press conference. Get bonus …
 
Connacht invariable finish the season on a loss, winning only 4 of their 19 final regular season games since the start of the PRO14, will it be any different against an Ospreys side with a lot to play for?

Benetton kept their hopes reaching the Rainbow Cup final firmly on course when a dogged win over the maddeningly inconsistent Connacht team in Treviso. The visitors lost the man earning his 200th cap, Denis Buckley, after only 32 seconds which had a massive impact on the game as the majority of the 15 penalties that Benetton won in the match came a…
 
Denis Buckley will become only the 3rd player to play 200 times for Connacht when he takes the field against Benetton in the Rainbow Cup in a game that sees the Italian side looking to keep their unbeaten record as they top the Rainbow Cup table. William Davies was asking the questions at the press conference where Denis was joined by Connacht defe…

Connacht started the game like a whirlwind but got blown away by a hurricane of a performance by the PRO14 champions in the Sportsground in round 2 of the Rainbow Cup.

Who knew how important the new law allowing the captain to challenge a refereeing decision would be in changing the result of a match, well now we know.

It's a big European week for Connacht as they take on the might of the Leicester Tigers for the first time in a competitive match and the Craggy Crew cogitate over how the western province can break their hoodoo of loses in England with only 2 wins ever recorded on English soil. The crew also pay tribute to Nigel Carolan who announced his departure…
 
Connacht are a top 4 side this season, but the second half display in the second half of this bonkers match certainly made the quality of that position questionable at best, a top 4 side does not blow a 21 point half-time lead. Andy Friend and Paul Boyle give us their thoughts in the post match press conference as William Davies, Rob Murphy and Ala…
