Lock Quinn Roux and flanker Sean O’Brien have returned to the Connacht starting line-up for their PRO14 game against Ulster at home on Friday.
They are among four changes to the side which lost narrowly to Leinster in the RDS last weekend with hooker Shane Delahunt and tighthead Conor Carey also named in the starting XV.
Carey and Delahunt come into a front-row that also includes loosehead Denis Buckley while Roux partners Gavin Thornbury in the second-row.
In the back-row O’Brien comes in at blindside with captain Jarrad Butler reverting to the number eight jersey.
Man of the match in the Leinster game Jack Carty, continues his half-back pairing with Caolin Blade. In the back three, Darragh Leader starts again at full-back with Kyle Godwin, who was a late replacement for the Leinster game and Cian Kelleher retained on the wings.
Stephen Fitzgerald who joined Connacht on loan move this week, takes his place among the replacements.
Meanwhile, Ulster head coach Dan McFarland has made just four changes to the starting XV that defeated Munster in the first of three successive inter-pro derbies last weekend.
