Underground Drainage Any Alternative to Normal Clay Pipe Adaptor?

Need to connect into downpipe from the gutter, normally not an issue but...

Have a clay underground drainage pipe that extends only 5 cm from the side of my garage. That includes the lip, also there are some minor cracks extending about 8 cm into the pipe body. Have tested the pipe by running water through it and it works OK, so no problems there.

The internal diameter of the main pipe body is 10 cm (External Diameter 12.5cm).

Is there a product that can be inserted into to body of the pipe (or another method) to overcome this issue?

Or is the only way to solve this to drill out part of the garage wall so I can get a Clay Adaptor around the pipe?

Not quite sorry bad explanation.

UPDATE: Have fixed in a new plastic pipe into the clay end socket using Sticks Like S###T, aligned the pipe using rolled up DPC inside (supported clay pipe and a portion of the plastic pipe as well with ballast and cement) and it's worked like a dream.

Better than me digging up the garage floor and punching a hole in the garage wall to fix on the rubber fittings you can get.
