The Connacht management team have named their match day 23 for tomorrow’s URC interpro against Munster.

There are two changes from the club’s last outing against Leicester Tigers two weeks ago, with URC top try-scorer Mack Hansen making a welcome return from injury to start on the wing for the first time in a month.

The other change is in the second row where Oisín Dowling comes into the starting side.

The rest of the starting XV is unchanged, meaning Hansen forms a back three with winger John Porch and full-back Tiernan O’Halloran, while internationals Kieran Marmion, captain Jack Carty, Bundee Aki and Sammy Arnold make up the half-back and centre pairings respectively.

The front row is again made up of Ballinrobe’s Matthew Burke, Ballina’s Dave Heffernan and Finlay Bealham, Ultan Dillane partners Dowling in the second row.

Flankers Cian Prendergast and Conor Oliver and number 8 Jarrad Butler make up the rest of the starting team.

Included on the bench is Academy scrum-half Matthew Devine, with the Ballinasloe RFC man named in a Pro matchday squad for the first time.

 

Munster, meanwhile, have made seven changes to their team for the visit to Galway.

20-year-old Alex Kendellen will make his first start for the province in the back row.

Kick off tomorrow is at a quarter past five.
