Listening to Andy Friend on off the ball, and he slipped in that Connacht will take on Oyonnax in a preseason in "3 and a half weeks" so likely the weekend of the 23-25th of August, no word where it is but I'd assume it's an away fixture.

Was listening also they are going to France for a training camp and playing them there.
Was expecting a friendly in Buccaneers again this year the one v Wasps last year was successful.

We've got Munster too,so that's two warmup games.
Seems one short to me as 3 tends to be the magic number for preseason, enough to get some fitness in the legs and match sharpness in the mind but not so many that you start getting injuries.

,
No Friend made a date mistake probably, as I sais a month ago Oyonnax game is on the 16th, can't be the week after as their championship (ProD2) starts
