Ulster play Munster at a sold-out Ravenhill this Friday, 30th December.
Many of the young players who faced Leinster yesterday evening at the RDS (42-13) have been named in the provisional squad which also includes the more experienced players that McLaughlin rested for the away trip to Leinster, with the festive clash against Munster at HQ just four days later. Ulster's Ireland internationals are not available for selection for this match.
The Ulster starting XV and replacements will be named at 12 noon on Thursday (29th Dec).
As the game is sold out, there will be no tickets for sale at the gates on match day. Supporters with tickets are advised to make their way to ground with plenty of time, gates open at 5.30pm.
Ticket zoning and scanning will be in operation at the ground this season. Supporters should check their tickets to ensure that they are entering through the correct gate. More details are available at http://www.ulsterrugby.com/news/9575.php.
