Giant-killers: Connacht

Connacht welcome back four squad members from injury ahead of Saturday's crucial Heineken Cup clash with Saracens at Allianz Park.

Following last Saturday's 20-3 victory over Zebre, there were no major injury concerns to worry the Connacht management, with the province set to do battle with the Premiership table-toppers for a quarter-final berth with a full squad.

Second-row Michael Kearney left the pitch with a shoulder injury in the first-half, but the 22-year-old is making good progress and the medical staff are optimistic he will be available towards the end of the week.

There was more good news for Pat Lam's squad with the return to training of Craig Clarke and Aly Muldowney. Both forwards are available for selection this week.

Craig Ronaldson's return from injury has also boosted options in the backline.
