Connacht have been boosted by confirmation that Bundee Aki will be available to face Leinster in their first interprovincial game of the season, as well as their return to Champions Cup rugby the following week.

Aki will sit out the final game of his 3-match suspension away to Ospreys on Saturday - a ban that was handed down when he became the first Irish player to be sent off in a World Cup match, against Samoa earlier this month - but he will be back when Connacht take on Leinster on Friday week 8th November.

Out-half Jack Carty will also make his return for the derby with Leinster at the Sportsground, following his impressive World Cup, after both internationals were pencilled in for training next week.
