Long-awaited return: Dan Tuohy fractured his ankle last December

Normally an 'A' friendly hit-out between Ulster and Leinster would hardly merit too much attention but Dan Tuohy's presence in the side for tonight's meeting at Donnybrook (kick-off 7.00) alters that notion.

It marks Tuohy's first game-time since last December when the 31-year-old lock fractured his ankle in the clash with Edinburgh.

Tuohy will also lead the 'A' side in what is a warm-up ahead of their B&I Cup campaign which starts next Friday at home to Jersey.

Kyle McCall brings added bulk to the pack while Jacob Stockdale and Jonny McPhillips are centre and out-half respectively.

Brett Herron and Rob Lyttle are named on the bench, even though both were subs with Ulster's senior side last night. They will only feature depending on game-time in Galway.

Ulster A: C Smith, A Cairns, J Stockdale, M Best, C Kelly, J McPhillips, A Lloyd; K McCall, J Andrew, J Simpson, D Tuohy (c), J Donnan, M Rea, N Timoney, L Dow Subs: A McBurney, T O'Hagan, C Trenier, S Mulholland, Marcus Rea, B Herron, R Lyttle, O Brown, T Staple.
