Latest casualty: Cormac Izuchukwu suffered a knee complaint in the weekend defeat of Harlequins

Ulster are facing a second-row shortage for Saturday's Challenge Cup quarter-final trip to Northampton Saints.

Academy lock Cormac Izuchukwu, who has impressed in his first exposure to senior rugby of late, hobbled out of the emphatic win over Harlequins at the weekend and is waiting for scan results on an injury his head coach Dan McFarland admitted "did not look good."

The former Sevens star was making his European debut from the bench at the Twickenham Stoop and again provided McFarland with a dynamic option in the engine room with two big carries after his introduction.
