PROLIFIC WING MATT Healy has been added to Connacht’s matchday 23 for tomorrow’s Champions Cup clash away to Wasps (13.00).

The former Lansdowne man was due to return from injury against Treviso last weekend, but was withdrawn as a precaution with a knee knock.

However, after returning to training this week he has benefitted from another late Withdrawal to take the number 23 jersey. Centre Peter Robb is the man who will miss out after pulling up with what the province calls a ‘minor hip injury’.
