Connacht Unchanged For Newcastle Rematch

Connacht Unchanged For Newcastle Rematch

The same 22-man squad that was selected for last week’s 16-13 win at the Sportsground will be on duty for Connacht in the return match against Newcastle Falcons this Sunday (Kingston Park, kick-off 3pm).

Coach Michael Bradley has kept faith with the same 22 players for the European Challenge Cup Round 4 clash with the Falcons.

Hooker John Fogarty, who is included in the squad, could potentially make his 100th appearance for the side in his fifth season, should he play a part on Sunday. Should he reach the century milestone, Fogarty would become the 10th player to have reached 100 competitive games for Connacht.
