Connacht head coach Michael Bradley has made two changes to his side for their opening match in the European Challenge Cup away to Dax on Friday.

Former Newcastle Falcons and England prop Robbie Morris comes back into the front row at tight-head as Connacht aim to get their campaign off to a flying start before facing London Irish at the Sportsground the following week.

Bradley's side come into the game off the back of a confidence boosting win in the Celtic League derby against Leinster, and will be hoping that their vast experience in the competition can guide them to success.
