Solitary change for Connacht

There is just one change to the Connacht starting XV for Saturday's Guinness PRO12 play-off against Glasgow Warriors at the Sportsground.

Eoin McKeon comes into the back row in the only change to the side that defeated the same opposition in the final round of games a fortnight ago.

McKeon joins captain John Muldoon and Jake Heenan, while Aly Muldowney locks down with Ultan Dillane in the second row. The front row of Ronan Loughney, Tom McCartney and Finlay Bealham is retained.

The back line is unchanged with Bundee Aki named in the centre alongside Robbie Henshaw, while Tiernan O'Halloran takes his place at full-back as Niyi Adeolokun and Mayy Healy start on the wings.

AJ MacGinty and Kieran Marmion get the nod in the half-back line.

Connacht (XV v Glasgow Warriors): T O'Halloran; N Adeolokun, R Henshaw, B Aki, M Healy; AJ MacGinty, K Marmion; R Loughney, T McCartney, F Bealham, U Dillane, A Muldowney, E McKeon, J Heenan, J Muldoon.

Replacements: D Heffernan, JP Cooney, R Ah You, A Browne, S O'Brien, J Cooney, S O'Leary, P Robb.

Glasgow (XV v Connacht): S Hogg; T Seymour, M Bennett, P Horne, S Lamont; F Russell, H Pyrgos; G Reid, F Brown, Z Fagerson, L Nakarawa, J Gray, R Wilson, S Favaro, J Strauss.
