Injury worries for Bradley

Flanker Mike McCarthy, wing Aidan Wynne and prop Ronan Loughhney have been added to the Connacht squad for Friday evening's Magners League clash against Edinburgh in Murrayfield.

Conversely, coach Michael Bradley has been hit with the news of injuries to prop Robbie Morris and centre Niva Ta'auso.

Hard running centre Ta'auso is out with a fracture in his hand and will undergo further tests this week to establish its extent, while Morris has a back injury which forced him to retire in the opening game against the Ospreys.

CONNACHT SQUAD (v Edinburgh):

A Browne, F Carr, S Cronin, G Duffy, A Flavin, J Hagan, I Keatley, R Loughney, K Matthews, M McCarthy, M McComish, J Muldoon, F Murphy, T Nathan, M Nikora, J O'Connor, R Ofisa, C O'Loughlin, B Tuohy, B Upton, B Wilkinson, A Wynne.
