IRFU Chief Executive Philip Browne has issued a statement following confirmation of Ronan O'Gara's decision to retire from playing professional rugby.
The Connacht derby between Buccaneers and Galwegians promises to be an interesting match-up. The home side are currently third in Division 1B with 25 points.
Visitors Galwegians are ten points behind them in eighth place. Both sides were narrowly beaten last week, so Friday night's game is a chance to get back to winning ways in the Ulster Bank League.
The fixture is also doubling as the Connacht qualifier for this season's Ulster Bank Bateman Cup, with the winners hosting Garryowen in an All-Ireland semi-final on Saturday week.
The Buccs v 'Wegians clash will be streamed live right here on IrishRugby.ie with full commentary from Adrian O'Farrell and Gordon Black.
Match highlights will be available a few days later on our official YouTube Channel which already features highlights from:
