The Connacht junior squad for Saturday’s final Interprovincial clash with Ulster has been named.

Kick-off in Lurgan, Co Armagh is at 2.30pm.

Three Mayo players have been named in head coach Barry Ruane’s starting line-up.

Connacht can win the series if they beat Ulster with a bonus point and for Leinster to beat Munster without a bonus point but all four provinces still have a chance of winning the series if certain results go their way.

Westport’s Sam Walsh comes back in at scrum-half and Buccaneers’ Graham Lynch comes onto the bench.
