British & Irish Lions winger Tommy Bowe will play his first game since November on Friday evening after being named in the Ulster side for their match against the Dragons.
Bowe injured his leg in November but returns to the flank with the Ireland coaching staff likely to be keeping a close eye on how he does. Bowe is joined in the back three by Jared Payne and debutant Rory Scholes.
Paddy Jackson has been released by Ireland and starts at fly-half with Iain Henderson also getting the nod.
