Trimble, who is one of the standby players to narrowly miss out on Joe Schmidt’s World Cup squad, will surpass Paddy Wallace’s caps record of 189 in Kingspan Stadium.

“Paddy is a guy who I have a massive amount of respect for so overtaking his total means a lot. It’s going to be a very special night for me,” says the 30-year-old.

“Whenever I started my career I wouldn’t have dreamed that I would get to 190 appearances for Ulster. Every game has been unbelievable, especially the matches at Kingspan Stadium on a Friday night.”

Hooker Rob Herring will again captain Neil Doak’s impressive side fellow Ireland internationals Dan Tuohy, Robbie Diack and Roger Wilson behind him in the pack. Nick Williams will miss the game for personal reasons, the province say.

Trimble joins an impressive back-line that includes the powerful Stuart McCloskey inside Luke Marshall in midfield.
