Michael Bradley has made three changes to his Connacht side for their second-round European Challenge Cup encounter with London Irish at the Sportsground on Friday night (7pm).
Adrian Flavin starts at hooker against his former side while Ray Ofisa is selected at blindside flanker. Aidan Wynne comes in at inside centre for the injured Mel Deane as Connacht and London Irish battle it out for top spot in pool one.
Connacht's superb 30-12 away win to Dax in the south of France last week has given Michael Bradley's men a great chance of advancing from the pool.
The first-ever competitive fixture between the sides on Friday is poised to go a long way towards deciding the pecking order in this pool. A number of hospitality packages are still available for this historic encounter.
Connacht team: F Carr; L Bibo, G Duffy, A Wynne, J Hearty; I Keatley, F Murphy; B Wilkinson, A Flavin, R Morris; M Swift, A Farley; R Ofisa, J O’Connor, J Muldoon (capt).
Replacements: S Cronin, R Loughney, A Browne, C Rigney, K Campbell, A Dunne, D Riordan.
Not considered due to injury: Mel Deane (hamstring), Keith Matthews (calf), Conor O'Loughlin (hip), Mike Roberts (calf).
