deadly duo
VIDEO: I've been immensely impressed by what I've seen - Parks on Connacht
Dan Parks and Robbie Henshaw were interviewed by TG4 before their home game against Munster.

TWO OF CONNACHT’S stand-out players this season, Dan Parks and Robbie Henshaw, opened up about life with the province in the lead-up to a vital period of festive matches.

The duo were interviewed by TG4, and Nemeton TV, ahead of the home Pro12 match against Munster on Saturday.

Parks, 34, and Henshaw, 19, have played pivotal roles in some of Connacht’s best outings this season – home wins against Leinster and Biarritz and away victories against Zebre.

Connacht lost 16-12 to Munster at the Sportsground and while Parks contributed all his team’s scores, he will be disappointed at a penalty miss midway through the second half that would have turned the screw on their pressed opponents.

Henshaw was a positive attacking influence for Connacht at the weekend and impressed in the Heineken Cup triumph over Biarritz.
