ULSTER HAVE BEEN boosted by the return of Iain Henderson and Will Addison for tomorrow’s Heineken European Champions Cup away game against Scarlets (7.45pm, live on BT Sport).

The pair haven’t featured for the province since Ireland’s November Tests but are named in the side along with international team-mates Rory Best and Jacob Stockdale, who were both second-half substitutes in last Saturday’s Pro14 win over Cardiff Blues. 

Ulster captain Best is set to equal Andrew Trimble’s record of 71 European appearances in Llanelli, and he is joined in the front row by Eric O’Sullivan and Marty Moore. 

Meanwhile, Louis Ludik shifts from left wing to fullback to make room for Stockdale.
