This week they will play alongside the returning Nick Timoney, who impressed on the international stage, scoring a try against the USA on his Ireland debut last summer.

Ulster Rugby Academy graduate, Aaron Sexton, will make his first start for the province. Michael Lowry is in action again at full-back alongside Jacob Stockdale in the back three.

Stuart McCloskey and Luke Marshall, who combined so impressively for the first try last weekend, are retained in midfield.
