Ulster Select Squad For Glasgow Clash

Ulster Select Squad For Glasgow Clash

Ulster head coach Brian McLaughlin has named a 29-man squad ahead for the RaboDirect PRO12 opener against Glasgow Warriors on Friday night.

New signings Callum Black, Lewis Stevenson and Mike McComish could be in line to make their competitive debuts for Ulster in the Ravenhill tie (kick-off 7.05pm).

Prop Adam Macklin and utility back Peter Nelson could also earn their first senior caps for Ulster. The 18-year-old Nelson has featured in the pre-season friendly wins over Neath and Harlequins.

Despite having nine players involved in the Rugby World Cup, Ulster can still call on the experience of Chris Henry, Pedrie Wannenburg and Dan Tuohy in the forwards.

The backs will be hoping for a repeat of the speed and flair they showed in the 22-5 victory over Harlequins last Friday night.

Glasgow will themselves be without eight players during the World Cup, including Scotland captain Alastair Kellock.

Former Ulster winger Tommy Seymour is now on Glasgow#s books and could make an immediate return to Ravenhill if named in their squad.

Ulster Rugby are reminding supporters that this season ticket zoning and scanning will be in operation at the ground.
