Tom Tierney: one of four changes for Connacht
Connacht coach Michael Bradley has made four changes to his side for Saturday's Celtic League visit to the Racecourse Ground to face Llanelli.
CELTIC LEAGUE: Saturday, September 17
Llanelli Scarlets v Connacht, Racecourse Ground, 5.30pm (live Setanta Sports)
In the front row, the injured Ray Hogan (knee) makes way for Dan McFarland with Adrian Clarke moving up to the replacements bench.
In the back row, Michael Swift and Brendan O'Connor come in for John Muldoon and Matt Lacey respectively, while at scrum-half, Tom Tierney replaces Chris Keane from last weekend's disappointing 34-3 defeat at the hands of Edinburgh.
The Wrexham clash will be Connacht's sixth meeting with the Scarlets - the home side has never won on the five previous occasions they have met!
The Welsh, 20-16 losers to Cardiff Blues last night, have only won once in their last six competitive outings so the case for another away win in this fixture is a strong one.
Conor O'Loughlin, Ted Robinson, Conor McPhillips and Swift all touched down in the sides' last meeting in Wales - last October's 29-24 victory for Bradley's side at Stradey Park.
