Jack Carty will start at 10.
Offaly prop Conor Kenny have been handed his first Connacht start for tomorrow's Guinness PRO14 clash with Scarlets, along with former Garbally College team-mate Colm Reilly.
Kenny will be in a front-row alongside Shane Delahunt and Paddy McAllister.
While scrum-half Reilly will partner Athlone's Jack Carty in the half-backs for the game at the Sportsground.
Ultan Dillane and Kieran Marmion have both been released from the Ireland camp, Dillane starts in the pack with Marmion on the bench.
It'll be the Westerners' first game in three weeks after back to back games against Italian opposition were cancelled.
And it will be Carty's first game since missing out on the Ireland's squad for the Autumn Nations Cup.
That game kicks-off at 7.35 on Saturday.
