Connacht have announced the starting XV that will face Benetton Treviso this Friday night at The Sportsground.

The team remains virtually unchanged from the side that has featured in the last couple of weeks, one of two changes sees hooker Sean Cronin returning from Irish duty and Adrian Flavin moving to the bench.

Dave Nolan replaces Mike McComish on the bench. Mike has suffered a hamstring injury and is now unavailable for selection.

Dave is a 6' 6" 126kg lock from Galway and made his Magners League debut last season. He featured in Connacht's historic 40-17 victory over the Dragons at the start of the season
