Dan McFarland’s men claimed an incredible 24-25 bonus point win over Scarlets away from home a week ago, with Will Addison putting in a man-of-the-match performance to boost their hopes of reaching the knock-out stages. 

The province face the same opposition in Belfast on Friday, and they will stick with an identical starting XV. 

Captain Rory Best is set to move ahead of Andrew Trimble as Ulster’s most capped player in European competitions with 72 appearances.
