“If you’re at the top of the league you just can’t be satisfied with winning your home games you have got to perform on the road.”
“Corinthians have a lot of Connacht Acadmey players so they will be strong but we still have control in our own hands although the loser of this game will drop of the pace.”
“It’s getting interesting at the top and I think last week we got ahead of ourselves taking about it being a cup fial we have just got to build it and take it one game at a time.”
