ULSTER HEAD COACH Neil Doak has made just two changes to his starting XV as they get set to take on Cardiff Blues at Kingspan Stadium on Friday evening.

The Irish pair of Paddy Jackson and Darren Cave have returned from Rugby World Cup duty and take their spot among the replacements.

After coming back from injury last week, out-half Ian Humphreys will start his first competitive match of the season while the back three of Craig Gilroy, Andrew Trimble and Louis Ludik are retained.

Lewis Stevenson is the only change up front, taking the place of Dan Tuohy, who suffered a concussion in the defeat to Edinburgh.
