Bell and Larkin into breach for Ulster

Ulster have made five changes due to injury and international commitments for their Celtic League clash versus Munster at Ravenhill.

Injury and Ireland call-ups have seen Mark McCall make a number of changes to his Ulster line-up ahead of this Saturday’s Celtic clash against Munster at Ravenhill.

With both Kevin Maggs and David Humphreys not released by the Irish management and Paddy Wallace out injured, Jonny Bell returns to the centre, while Adam Larkin takes over the duties at out-half making his first start since he played in the centre against NEC Harlequins.

On the replacements bench, Rory Best features for the first time this season while Gary Brown, Seamus Mallon and Adrew Maxwell also return to the 22.
