Bundee Aki Ruled Out Of Connacht's Inter-Pro Derby With Ulster

All four provinces are in United Rugby Championship action this weekend.

A knee injury has ruled Bundee Aki out of Connacht's inter-pro derby with Ulster tomorrow. 

The Lions centre will sit out the game at the Aviva Stadium in the United Rugby Championship but is still set to link up with the Ireland squad. 

Tom Daly replaces Aki in Connacht's midfield with Athlone's Jack Carty and Niall Murray also both set to start. 

 

Ulster are boosted by the return of their captain Iain Henderson. 

Fellow Ireland internationals Robert Baloucoune, Stuart McCloskey and Eric O'Sullivan also come in to start. 

 

Conor Murray and Damien de Allende both get their first starts of the campaign for Munster for their trip to Ospreys. 

 

It all starts with Leinster's trip to Glasgow this evening.

7.35 is the throw-in time in Scotstoun.

Jonathan Sexton’s been given a chance to recover from a hip injury ahead of Ireland’s autumn internationals. 

He’s been omitted from the Leinster matchday squad, Luke McGrath captains, in his absence, from scrum-half.
