Ulster unchanged for Treviso clash

Ulster coach Mark Anscombe has selected an unchanged team for tomorrow’s Heineken Cup Pool 5 match against Benetton Treviso at Stadio Monigo (kick off 14.35/13.35 UK and Ireland).

Ulster beat the same opposition by 48 points to nil at Ravenhill last weekend.


It is the first time in his year and a half in charge of the team that Anscombe has named the same 23 for two consecutive matches.


The game will be particularly significant for Ulster lock, Dan Tuohy, who makes his 100th appearance.


”I was aware at the end of last season that I was sitting in the high 80s so I knew I was going to hit it at some point this year," he said.

"It’s nice and it’s something that I will look back on at the end of my career and be proud of. Having reached 100 appearances for Ulster is definitely special.”


Ulster XV and replacements to face Benetton Treviso, Heineken Cup, Stadio Monigo, Saturday 14th December (kick off 14:35): J Payne, A Trimble, D Cave, L Marshall, C Gilroy, P Jackson, R Pienaar; (1-8): T Court, R Herring, J Afoa, J Muller (Captain), D Tuohy, R Diack, S Doyle, R Wilson; Replacements (16-23): N Annett, C Black, D Fitzpatrick, N McComb, M McComish, P Marshall, M Allen, D McIlwaine.
