James Hume suffered a knock against Munster and will now be added to Ulster’s long injury list

Having ended 2021 with their already bloated absentee list expanding ever further owing to a Christmas Covid-19 outbreak, Ulster’s first game of 2022 saw them travel to Thomond Park with 14 players unavailable, 10 of them capped internationals.

There aren’t many club sides in the world who wouldn’t miss Iain Henderson, Stuart McCloskey, Jacob Stockdale, Robert Baloucoune and Will Addison.
