Nathan White back in Connacht squad as Pat Lam makes changes for Edinburgh clash

Pat Lam also reveals Robbie Henshaw is close to full fitness.

IRISH INTERNATIONAL NATHAN WHITE has been named in the Connacht squad for the first time since the Rugby World Cup and could feature for the province in their Pro12 clash with Edinburgh at The Sportsground tomorrow night.

The 34-year-old featured in all five of Ireland’s matches, having only made his debut for Joe Schmidt’s side in August.

His return is a boost for Connacht coach Pat Lam, who has made three changes to his starting XV for Saturday’s assignment against the Scots, which gets underway at 6.45.

Captain John Muldoon and fellow forwards Tom McCartney and Andrew Browne all come in.
