LUKE MARSHALL WILL not be part of Ireland’s plans for the final November Test against Australia.

Instead, the centre will start for Ulster when they host Zebre in the Pro12 on Friday evening (kick-off 7.35pm).

Marshall will be joined in midfield by Louis Ludik who returns from injury, while Chris Henry makes his first start of the season following a shoulder problem.

Les Kiss has also named a strong bench for the visit of the Italians with Dan Tuohy, Robbie Diack and Craig Gilroy all named among the replacements.
