Cormac Izuchukwu during his senior Ulster debut on Friday night.

Ulster's stand-in skipper Jordi Murphy has backed the province's latest debutant, Cormac Izuchukwu, to make a big impact at Kingspan Stadium.

A former Sevens international, the converted lock made his bow for Dan McFarland in Friday's win over Glasgow, becoming the sixth member of the province's Academy to get a first taste of senior action this season.

Whether it be through injury, suspension or international call-ups, Ulster have had times this season when shortages in the second-row have been keenly felt, and Murphy feels Izuchukwu can make an impact upon the group moving forward.
