Ulster Team Named For Inter-Pro Clash With Leinster
Rory Best will return to captain Ulster in Saturday’s Guinness PRO14 game versus Leinster at the RDS Arena in Dublin. Best, who has recovered from an ankle skin infection, has not featured since the game against Dragons at the start of December.
Academy scrumhalf Johnny Stewart has earned a first senior start for the Province, having made his debut off the bench against the same opposition earlier in the season, while Ireland international wingers Andrew Trimble and Jacob Stockdale are joined in an exciting back three by All Black fullback Charles Piutau.
