Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
Darren Yapp, who lined out on the left wing for Connacht, goes on the attack. The westerners wore their new 'away' strip of all black at Netherdale. The 31-year-old Yapp will be hoping to better his return of two tries in 13 games last season - Connacht have six home league fixtures on the trot up until the middle of next month, starting with next Friday's visit of the Ospreys to the Sportsground.
Paul Warwick, who was Connacht's hero late on with a drop goal and try, and Darren Yapp track the movements of Borders winger Simon Danielli, who was in impressive form for the Scotland 'A' side during the Churchill Cup in June.
Yapp comes in to halt the progress of danger man Danielli.
Scotland and Lions scrum half Chris Cusiter tries to break through the Connacht defence.
Yapp and Danielli continue their wing duel. It was honours even in the end as both were kept scoreless.
