Connacht Make Four Changes For Second Cup Outing

Head coach Michael Bradley has made four changes to his Connacht team for tomorrow’s European Challenge Cup second round encounter with Cetransa El Salvador at the Sportsground (kick-off 6.30pm).

Conor O’Loughlin comes into the side at scrum half while Danny Riordan returns from injury to make his first start of the season at outside centre. The other two changes are up front with Adrian Flavin starting at hooker and Ray Ofisa is named at openside flanker.

This is only Connacht’s third home match of the season having been away for five of their seven games to date.
