This fixture was rescheduled from December. It offers Connacht the unprecedented chance of making it three wins from their last four outings in the Magners League.
Adrian Flavin comes in for Ireland's Sean Cronin at hooker in what is otherwise an unchanged side from that which scalped Benetton Treviso last week. A bonus-point is there for the taking against the bottom club.
