Connacht Choose Squad For Dragons Game

Connacht Choose Squad For Dragons Game

Connacht coach Michael Bradley has named a 26-man squad for the province’s Magners League clash with the Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade on Saturday (kick-off 4.30pm).

Michael Bradley has a number of injury concerns with Mike McComish, Jamie Hagan and Ian Keatley all nursing knocks which he hopes will clear up by the time he announces the starting line-up on Friday morning.

Flanker Ray Ofisa (illness) and prop Robbie Morris, who has received a three week ban after being cited for an incident in the game against Ulster, are ruled out.
