Video: Franco van der Merwe captains Ulster in Ospreys clash


Table-topping Ulster bid to maintain their unbeaten start to the season and augment last week’s win away to Glasgow.

With both co-captains Rob Herring and Andrew Trimble both unavailable, Franco van der Merwe will lead the team on Saturday evening against Ospreys when the sides meet in a top of the Guinness PRO12 table game at Kingspan Stadium

The South African, who made one appearance for the Springboks, arrived at Kingspan in 2014 and captains the side for the first time.
