Connacht v Ulster Fri Dec 28 7:35pm TV (Premier Sport 1, Eir

So game 2 of the festive derbies. Team announced tomorrow. How many changes do we expect?

Cooney , McCall and Hume facing RTPP, Baloucoune likely to be banned. Stockdale available for this one.

The Westies put out a full side at the OurDS, so interesting to see whether they rotate their squad in this game or v Munster at home next week.

They have a big game in the Parker Pen in R5 at home v Sale. Can still win their pool etc.

I would imagine we will send a strongish team and then the kids to theirDS. Mitrea is the ref so I would abandon all hope.

Anyone else think McCall had dropped a cup size?

There seems to be a shift in conditioning thought.

You are correct. I thought it was the Munster game.

They have dropped the slim fit shirts for the front row.

The long awaited debut of Tommy O'Hagan on the cards? I wish him well, he has had terrible luck with injuries. Connacht will provide a baptism of fire. They fairly roasted the scrum at Ravenspan.

Be interesting now to see what gets sent to the slaughterhouse next week. Expected jordi to get a rest at least this week. Should be a decent game in Galway.

Good to see McPhil get a start. McCloskey finally gets a rest. Delighted for O'Hagan. Hopefully a good game of running rugby.

Rory and Jacob could well be. Reidy and Burns getting a rest this week. Addison may get next week off.
