Ulster Squad Announced For Dragons Game

Ulster head coach Mark Anscombe has named an extended 25-man squad for Friday’s RaboDirect PRO12 match against the Newport Gwent Dragons at Ravenhill (kick-off 7.05pm).

With just three matches remaining for Ulster in the RaboDirect PRO12, the fixture is vitally important as the province bid for a place in the play-offs of the competition.

Tommy Bowe, who played 20 minutes against Saracens in last Saturday’s Heineken Cup quarter-final defeat, is in line to make his first start for Ulster since he suffered knee ligament damage against Northampton Saints in December.

Ulster are second in the RaboDirect PRO12, one point behind leaders Glasgow Warriors and three points ahead of third-placed Leinster.
