Connacht welcome Irish internationals Ultan Dillane and Dave Heffernan back into the fold for the Guinness Pro14 trip to Southern Kings this Sunday.
The pair were both released from the Ireland camp following the postponement of the Six Nations tie with Italy, and duly met up with the squad for the clash in Port Elizabeth (kick-off 1pm Irish time).
Dillane starts in the second row alongside Joe Maksymiw with Heffernan named among the replacements.
In all there are six changes from the side that lost to Edinburgh last weekend.
Paddy McAllister is drafted back into the front row alongside Shane Delahunt, while there's also a start for prop Dominic Robertson-McCoy following an ankle injury to Finlay Bealham.
The back row is unchanged for the third straight game with Jarrad Butler captaining the side at number 8, with flankers Paul Boyle and Colby Fainga'a alongside him.
Caolin Blade comes back into the starting side to partner Jack Carty in the half-back positions, while there’s also a change at centre where Tom Daly is named alongside Kyle Godwin.
The final swap comes on the wing where Connacht’s record try-scorer Matt Healy makes up a back three with John Porch and Tiernan O’Halloran.
"We didn’t get the result we wanted in Edinburgh, so this week has been all about ensuring we get another win on the board," said head coach Andy Friend.
"The Kings are a dangerous side, especially at home, so we will have to be at our very best.
"We’ve been able to call on two international footballers in Dave and Ultan which is a nice boost for us. This mini block of three games is key for us so I believe we have named a squad that can get the job done on Sunday and finish on a high before the short break."
