SEAN CRONIN, GAVIN Duffy, Jamie Hagan, Ray Ofisa and Keith Matthews all return to the Connacht squad which will play Bayonne this Friday in the Amlin Challenge Cup.

Cronin, Duffy and Hagan were all left out of the squad which travelled to Italy to lose to Cavalieri Prato last weekend. Ofisa and Matthews both return from injury.

Connacht will “look ahead to next weekend rather than dwell on last Saturday’s defeat” according to coach Eric Elwood.

“Saturday is behind us now and we’ll press on in a positive way and hopefully we’ll see the rewards on Friday”
