Connacht coach Andy Friend is hoping for a big finish to the season from Robin Copeland as they bid to nail down a PRO14 play-off spot, and automatic entry to the Heineken Champions Cup.

Injuries have forced 31-year old Copeland to just appear 8 times for Connacht this season, but he came off the bench in Parma on Saturday to see Connacht over the line.

The Westerners had a hard-fought 6-5 win over Zebre on Saturday evening and have a four-point lead over Cardiff Blues, who visit the Sportsground next Saturday.
