While Leinster will have to do without their big Ireland squad due to the national team’s trip to Twickenham, Ulster has been driven for this top-flight clash with the return of three stars from the table. Controlled by Andy Farrell.
Mike Lowry, who made his debut against Italy last month, is back in white for the first time since February 4 and will start at full-back. Robert Baloucoune, a player who has scored 6 goals in the past 5 games, is still not in the Six Nations and is on the right wing.
Nick Timoney has also been released from Irish duty and will be looking to shine in the back row.
Leinster has 13 players against Ireland on the 23rd so Leo Cullen’s men will have a completely different view.
Ross Byrne will direct the ship from No. 10 and their loose forward unit of Rhys Ruddock, Max Deegan and Scott Penny will enjoy a great battle with their Ulster counterparts.
Ulster – M Lowry; R Baloucoune, S Moore, S McCloskey, C Gilroy; B Burn, N Doak; A Warwick, J Andrew, M Moore; A O’Connor (c), S Carter; M Rea, N Timoney, D Vermeulen. Representatives: T Stewart, E O’Sullivan, G Milasinovich, M Kearney, J Murphy, J Cooney, I Madigan, B Moxham.
Leinster – J O’Brien; A Byrne, R O’Loughlin, J Osborne, T O’Brien; R Byrne, L McGrath (c); E Byrne, J Tracy, M Ala’alatoa; R Molony, J McCarthy, R Ruddock, S Penny, M Deegan. Representatives: S Cronin, P Dooley, T Clarkson, D Toner, D Leavy, Nick McCarthy, D Hawkshaw, M Moloney.
