Despite having 12 players unavailable for selection through injury and international status, McCall is upbeat; "We have quite a few players unavailable for selection this week, but we've still been able to name a very competitive starting XV which shows how far Ulster has come in the past few years. A lot of the players unavailable this week are expected to be ready to play again in the next couple of weeks so hopefully we'll have some proper selection decisions to make soon."
"We were all dissatisfied with the performance against The Dragons last Saturday. We'd had a very demanding training camp prior to our trip with a lot of travel which was hardly ideal preparation for a game, excuses aside though, we were still unhappy. However, we've trained well this week and the boys can't wait to get to Murrayfield on Saturday."
