Ulster's top 10 are hitting the right notes for Fulton

Ireland coach Craig Fulton has named his 20-strong squad for this weekend's training camp in Belgium ahead of the World League series later this month at the same venue, with 10 Ulstermen included.

Fulton will put his players through their paces at the home of KHC Dragons and they will also play two games against the Belgians, who are ranked No.4 in the world, 10 ahead of the Green Machine.

Banbridge supply a trio in Drew Carlisle, Stephen Dowds and Eugene Magee while the other Ulstermen are Jonathan Bell, Chris Cargo, Peter Caruth, Paul Gleghorne, John Jackson, Michael Robson and Michael Watt.

"We are looking forward to the two games against the team that is the top seed in our pool and it will also give us a feel for the tournament venue beforehand," said Fulton.

"We will pick our World League 3 squad after this weekend's matches."

The only changes from the squad that faced France recently are Jonny Bruton and Mitch Darling return at the expense of Timmy Cockram and Stuart Loughrey.
