Ulster call on big names
February 15, 2007
The Ulster team to take on the Dragons on Friday night at Ravenhill includes seven Ulster players who have been involved with the Irish senior team in recent weeks including Isaac Boss who played for the full 80 minutes for Ireland against France on Sunday.
Boss is joined by his international colleagues Paddy Wallace, Andrew Trimble, Tommy Bowe, Neil Best, Simon Best and Bryan Young,
McCall also welcomes back Ulster favourite David Humphreys who has now fully recovered from his elbow injury. There is an injury concern with Roger Wilson so McCall has opted to name both Roger Wilson and new recruit Sam Harding as an either/or option, with a final decision will be made tomorrow afternoon.
Ulster are currently second place in the Magners League and will be hoping for a return to winning ways at Ravenhill.
Tickets for the promenade and terrace will be available to purchase at the gate tomorrow night.
