Finlay Bealham will be available
Bundee Aki will miss Connacht's upcoming United Rugby Championship games in South Africa.
The world player of the year nominee has a hamstring injury, but it's hoped he will be available for the start of the Champions Cup.
Fellow Irish international Mack Hansen will also miss the matches against the Sharks and the Bulls with an ankle problem.
But Finlay Bealham will be available for those matches.
