Edinburgh have been forced to make a change to their team for tonight’s Magners League game against Connacht at the Sportsground in Galway (kick-off 7.45pm).

Ben Cairns has failed to recover sufficiently from a blow to the knee sustained in the 23-16 win over Ospreys last Saturday, and will be replaced at outside centre by Nick De Luca. Tom Brown, who recently signed a new two-year contract with the club, comes onto the bench.

Tonight’s match is to be screened live by BBC ALBA, with John Houston the studio guest.
