Grand Slam winners Fiona Coghlan and Nora Stapelton have returned the Women's RBS 6 Nations trophy to Chief Executive John Feehan at the Six Nations offices in Dublin.
Connacht coach Michael Bradley has confirmed his 22-man squad for Friday's Challenge Cup encounter with French side Montpellier (The Sportsground, kick-off 6.30pm).
There are three changes to the matchday 22 from last weekend's Magners League defeat to Munster in Limerick.
Back into the line-up come winger Ted Robinson, out-half David Slemen and prop Brett Sturgess, with Darren Yapp, Conor McPhillips and Ray Hogan making way - the latter two are suffering from nose and calf injuries respectively.
Slemen impressed last weekend for Galwegians, tallying up ten points in their 47-32 AIB League Division One win over Blackrock College.
The Connacht starting XV and replacements, for what is the westerners' fifth game against Montpellier in the space of two year, will be announced later today.
CONNACHT Squad: Andrew Farley, Adrian Flavin, John Fogarty (capt), David Gannon, John Hearty, Chris Keane, Stephen Knoop, Keith Matthews, Mark McHugh, John Muldoon, Ray Ofisa, Conor O'Loughlin, Colm Rigney, Daniel Riordan, Ted Robinson, David Slemen, Ryan Strudwick, Brett Sturgess, Michael Swift, Paul Warwick, Brett Wilkinson, Gavin Williams.
