Prop Cian Healy is expected to miss the start of the 2014 RBS 6 Nations after undergoing surgery on his injured ankle on Wednesday.
Friday's game is an all-ticket game at the Sportsground and the Connacht Branch are urging supporters to snap up tickets fast.
The tickets, which cost €25, are being sold on a first-come basis and are available online from www.TicketMaster.ie or from Ticketmaster outlets in Galway, which include the Zhivago stores and FancyFare in Salthill.
Tickets are also available from the Connacht Rugby headquarters at the Sportsground between 9am and 5pm each day. Season tickets will, of course, be valid for the game.
Connacht Rugbys' commercial manager Fiona Keys said that there was a strong demand for tickets and urged supporters to get their tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment as the game could be a sell-out.
"There is huge interest in the game and we are looking forward to a packed Sportsground on Friday," Keys said.
