Leinster will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the league on Friday with a win over bottom side Connacht. Cheika's side may be without several key internationals but will also be without the services of Leo Cullen who misses out with a shoulder injury.
In Cullen's absence Chris Whitaker is likely to lead the side. Shane Horgan and Luke Fitzgerald will also be in the squad having been released by Eddie O'Sullivan.
Michael Bradley has made 3 changes to his side with Keith Matthews, Conor O'Loughlin and Colm Rigney all coming into the team.
Leinster will be looking for a full haul but that's never been easy against this Connacht side.
So is an upset on the cards or will Leinster's title charge continue unabated???
