Morris And Swift Included By Connacht

Head coach Michael Bradley has made two changes in personnel for Connacht’s opening match in the European Challenge Cup away to Dax on Friday (kick-off 7pm local time).

Robbie Morris comes back into the front row at tighthead as Connacht aim to get their campaign off to a flying start before facing London Irish at the Sportsground the following week.

Michael Swift replaces the suspended Michael McCarthy in the second row. He will line out alongside former captain Andrew Farley.
