Connacht have a number of injury concerns ahead of the first of their back-to-back Amlin Challenge Cup games against Worcester Warriors on Saturday (Sixways Stadium, kick-off 3pm).
Andrew Browne, Troy Nathan, Johnny O’Connor and Jamie Hagan are doubtful for the trip to Sixways for Saturday’s game. Ireland ‘A’ centre Keith Matthews is ruled out.
Connacht coach Michael Bradley has confirmed that new signing, New Zealander George Naoupu, will be available for selection.
The return game will take place at the Sportsground on Friday, December 18, in what will be Connacht’s final home game of 2009.
