European Challenge Cup: Worcester Warriors v Connacht

With James Cannon ruled out through injury, Dillane’s return will be a boost to the Connacht pack which includes loosehead Peter McCabe, who made his first start against Munster, and Conor Carey at tighthead.

Monday, January 8th – Sunday, January 14th

Replacements: Shane Delahunt, Denis Coulson, Dominic Robertson-McCoy, Gavin Thornbury, Naulia Dawai, Caolin Blade, Eoin Griffin, Cian Kelleher.

“So, it casts a different light over selection, and it means we are having longer selection meetings and that is the space we are in. We have performed really well in Europe this season and we’ve given ourselves a great chance of advancing in the competition, but the job is not done yet.

        Ireland internationals Ultan Dillane, Bundee Aki and Kieran Marmion return to the Connacht team for Saturday’s Challenge Cup clash with Worcester Warriors at Sixways Stadium.
