BRETT WILKINSON AND Ronan Loughney have both been included in the Connacht side to face Edinburgh in Saturday afternoon’s RaboDirect PRO12 clash at the Sportsground.

Wilkinson earns his 150th cap for the province, while Nathan White makes way for Loughney in the front row.

Andrew Browne moves from flanker to lock as Johnny O’Connor comes into the team.

While there are no changes among the backs, there are a number of new faces among the replacements.

Prop JP Cooney is on the bench having made a fine impression for the Connacht Eagles, while 20-year-old Danny Qualter could make his first competitive appearance at some point.

Connacht: Henshaw; O’Halloran, Poolman, McSharry, Duffy; Parks, Marmion; Wilkinson, Harris-Wright, Loughney; Kearney, Browne; O’Connor, Faloon, McKeon

Replacements: Flavin, Buckley, Cooney, Qualter, Gannon, O’Donohoe, Nikora, Vainikolo.

Sprint coach: I can get Torres firing again >
