Connacht coach Michael Bradley has made two changes to his line-up for the visit of the Scarlets.

Following the defeat to Glasgow, Bradley has opted to shuffle his pack slightly.

Robbie Morris returns to the starting XV for the first time since serving his suspension for striking an opponent, with Jamie Hagen dropping to the bench.

Mike McComish is named in the back-row with Mike McCarthy switching to the second row and Michael Swift named among the replacements.

Wales full-back Morgan Stoddart makes his first Scarlets appearance in seven months after recovering from a knee injury.

Stoddart is named on the wing, with coach Nigel Davies pleased to see him back in action.

Davies told the club's official site: "Morgan's has been training very well with us, he's been taking contact for the past three weeks.

"He had no issues with the game last weekend (Llanelli v Aberavon) - he came through it reasonably well and he has shown up well in training. We know the kind of quality player Morgan is, so the sooner we can get him back on track the better."

With six players called up for international duty, Tavis Knoyle, Damian Welch and Richie Pugh are among those who have been handed a chance to shine.

Connacht: 15 Gavin Duffy, 14 Troy Nathan, 13 Nive Ta'auso, 12 Keith Matthews, 11 Fionn Carr, 10 Ian Keatley, 9 Frank Murphy, 8 Mike McComish, 7 Johnny O'Connor, 6 John Muldoon (capt), 5 Bernie Upton, 4 Mike McCarthy, 3 Robbie Morris, 2 Sean Cronin, 1 Brett Wilkinson.
