Connacht make six changes for Bulls game

Ahead of tomorrow afternoon’s URC game against the Bulls in Pretoria, Sean Jansen is set to make his Connacht debut as Pete Wilkins makes six changes to the side that beat the Sharks last weekend. Jack Carty comes in at out-half and captain while Colm Reilly is at scrumhalf. Diarmuid Kilgallen joins Byron Ralston and Tiernan O’Halloran in the back three while David Hawkshaw will partner Cathal Forde at 12. There’s one change in the second row with Darragh Murray joining Joe Joyce. It’s a brand-new back row with Oisin Dowling moving from lock to blindside, Shamus Hurley-Langton starts at open-side and Sean Jansen is set to make his debut wearing the number eight. Meanwhile, the Vodacom Bulls welcome back four World Cup-winning Springboks for tomorrow’s clash with Connacht in Pretoria with Willie le Roux set to make his club debut.
