Five Changes For Connacht

Connacht have made five changes to their team for the visit of the Scarlets to the Sportsground this Friday (kick-off 6.30pm).

Ireland international Gavin Duffy has recovered from a hamstring injury to take up position at full-back with Keith Matthews returning to inside centre having overcome a bout of flu.

Up front, Brett Wilkinson and Sean Cronin both return to the front row, with the fit-again Ray Ofisa also coming in to start at openside flanker.
