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.
