Magners League: Humphreys returns to shoulder burden

Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin has made four changes since last time out with one positional switch for tonight’s Magners League clash with Cardiff Blues.

With Paddy Wallace and Tom Court on Ireland’s bench for Sunday’s Six Nations match against Scotland, Luke Marshall and Bryan Young come in to cover at inside centre and loosehead prop respectively.

Ian Humphreys returns at out-half having recovered from his shoulder injury — he takes over from Paddy Jackson who is on Irish U20s duty.

Willie Faloon is recalled to the back row after being rested for last week's trip to Scarlets. He is named on the openside, with Chris Henry switching to number six in place of TJ Anderson, who moves to the bench.

Tickets are still available from www.ulsterrugby.com and all usual outlets. Gates open at 5.30pm.

ULSTER: Adam D’Arcy; Andrew Trimble, Nevin Spence, Luke Marshall, Craig Gilroy; Ian Humphreys, Ruan Pienaar; Bryan Young, Andy Kyriacou, Declan Fitzpatrick; Johann Muller(captain), Tim Barker; Chris Henry, Willie Faloon, Pedrie Wannenburg. Replacements: Nigel Brady, Paddy McAllister, Jerry Cronin, Ryan Caldwell, TJ Anderson, Paul Marshall, Ian Whitten, Tommy Seymour.
