Johann Muller, Nick Williams and Jared Payne have all recovered from injury and have been included in the Ulster squad for Friday night’s RaboDirect PRO12 game against Edinburgh at Murrayfield (Kick Off 7:30pm).
Ulster coach Mark Anscombe has also named Paddy Jackson and Paul Marshall who represented Ireland against Italy in the RBS 6 Nations last weekend.
Iain Henderson and Luke Marshall both suffered injuries on international duty and therefore miss the game. Henderson suffered a foot injury and will be assessed later today. Luke Marshall sustained concussion against Italy and will be monitored over the next seven days.
Ulster are second in the RaboDirect PRO12, level on points with leaders Glasgow Warriors, going into the round 18 matches.
