Ulster aim for top spot
March 1, 2007
With their Irish rivals and league leaders Leinster sitting out the Magners League action this weekend, Ulster will be looking to reclaim the top spot when they visit Llanelli Scarlets.
Ulster boss Mark McCall has named a 22 man squad for the clash at Stradey Park on Saturday night.
The squad includes four Ulster players who were involved with the Irish team's historic 43-13 Six Nations win over England at Croke Park last weekend including Isaac Boss, Simon Best, Paddy Wallace and Andrew Trimble.
Neil Best has not been included in the squad due to a thigh injury picked up in the Irish camp.
New Ulster Rugby signing Sam Harding has been included in the squad and will be hoping to make his debut in the Magners League this weekend.
