Connacht u18 Head Coach Jimmy Duffy has announced his Clubs squad for the trip to Belfast to take on Ulster Clubs in Ravenhill on Saturday at 1pm. After an opening day 12-5 defeat to Leinster in The Sportsgrounds last weekend, Connacht will be keen to come away with another win on Ulster soil after disposing of their schools counterparts a few weeks ago. A number of injuries have forced changes to the squad with Diarmuid O’Dowd-Hill returning at lock and Eddie Connell moving to number 8. Paul Hackett moves to openside and James O’Hehir switches to the 6 jersey with Sam McCormack dropping to the bench.

In the back line, Raurdhri Doolan comes in on the left wing for Cormac Langan who is out with a hamstring strain and on the bench, Enda Gavin comes in for Doolan.
