Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin has named a 26-man squad for his side’s Magners League derby clash with Munster at Ravenhill on Saturday (kick-off 6pm).
Ireland squad members Paddy Wallace, Andrew Trimble, Tom Court and Stephen Ferris have been named in Ulster’s extended panel for their opening match of 2010.
As part of the IRFU’s Player Management Programme, the quartet were rested for last weekend’s derby defeat to Leinster but are back this week to boost Brian McLaughlin’s men.
McLaughlin will confirm his starting line-up and replacements on Friday afternoon. Tickets for Saturday’s interprovincial encounter are available to purchase here and from Ulster Rugby ticket outlets nationwide.
