The strength in depth of this Ulster squad augers well for the coming season and has allowed Solomons rotate his players. McWhirter, injured for the Bedford game, takes over from Mark Blair who played against Bedford in the second row. Brosnihan will play at No 7 and Kempson at prop.
The only change in the backline from that game sees Sheldon Coulter in in place of Jan Cunninhgham while Kieran Campbell has been declared fit to play despite picking up a slight rib injury last weekend.
