Connacht have made one change from the team which beat Ulster last weekend in the PRO12.

Pat Lam has replaced second row Ultan Dillane with Quinn Roux, with Dillane dropping to the bench.

Connacht face a tough home tie against Toulouse, who are Champions Cup veterans. The sides have met four times before.

Pat Lam's side managed a shock 16-14 win in the Stade Ernest Wallon in 2013, but Toulouse stormed to 20+ point victories on the other three occasions. The game will kick off at 5.35pm tomorrow in The Sportsground.

Here is the Connacht team to face the French side.
