Jake Heenan believes Connacht can beat any team in the world as the province booked their Pro12 final showdown against Leinster next Saturday in Edinburgh.
The Westerners' edged past Glasgow 16-11 at the Sportsground on Saturday evening while Leinster powered past Ulster by a score of 30-18 in the other semi-final on Friday night at the RDS.
Leinster impressed greatly in dismissing the northern province and will start the final as warm favourites but Heenan feels Connacht can beat them.
“When we go to Murrayfield we just have to take the game to Leinster," he told RTE Sport.
“We’re not going to sit there and wait for them to take it to us.
“I think we’ve shown today and we’ve shown all season what we’re capable of so we’ll do our thing for another week and enjoy the week and work hard.
“I have every confidence we can get the W [win] and go on to win this championship.
“At the end of the day, no matter who comes here or where we go or who we play, there’s 15 men on the field and they are human and they play the same simple game that we play.
“We just go out there and do our thing and if we do our thing better than them we win the game.
“It’s easy to over-complicate things with [talk about] international caps and star players.
“At the end of the day when we work hard as a team and we stick to our guns I firmly believe that there’s no one in the world that we can’t beat.
“It is lovely to go out and do it against such as class side as Glasgow so hopefully we can go one more."
