Head Coach Toby Booth said: “Connacht are a physical side, the Irish provinces always are. They’re very efficient at the breakdown so we have to make sure we deal with the physicality they showed against the Scarlets, Leinster and Munster. That level of physicality is very challenging so we’re going to have to be ready for that fight.”


The following players were unavailable due to injury:

Dan Evans, Will Griffiths, Sam Cross, Bradley Davies, Will Hickey, Harri Morgan, Sam Moore, Mat Protheroe and Stephen Myler.
