Cheetahs v Connacht
Free State Stadium, Saturday 1st December 5pm (3pm Irish time)
Connacht will look to make it two wins from two in South Africa when they take on the Toyota Cheetahs in Bloemfontein tomorrow afternoon. Andy Friend has made five changes from his side that secured a bonus point win over the Kings in Port Elizabeth last Sunday.
Tom McCartney comes in for Shane Delahunt at hooker, Gavin Thornbury starts for the first time since picking up a shoulder injury against Scarlets in September in place of James Cannon who drops to the bench. There are two changes in the back row, Paul Boyle and Robin Copeland come into the side for Sean O’Brien and Colby Fainga’a. In the only change in the backs, Niyi Adeolokun comes in at no.14 for Cian Kelleher.
