Connacht fans will be travelling to Russia to support their team after the draw for rugby’s European Challenge Cup was made on ¬†Wednesday, June 17, and they will fancy their chances of making it into the European Cup ¬†– formerly the Heineken Cup – in 2018 as winners of the second-tier competition,.

Connacht are top seeds in Pool 1 in Europe’s second rugby competition and have drawn French team Brive, English team Newcastle Falcons and Russian newcomers Einsei-STM.
The Russian team, based in Krasnoyarsk, about 4,000 miles east of Moscow, have played before in the more accessble Black Sea resort town of Sochi, which hosted the Winter Olympics some years ago.
