Ulster Coach Brian McLaughlin has named his side for Friday’s Magners League game against Cardiff Blues at Ravenhill, kick-off 7.05pm.

McLaughlin has made four personal changes and one positional change following Ulster's win over the Scarlets last Friday night.

Paddy Wallace and Tom Court are on international duty so young Balymena centre Luke Marshall and Bryan Young come in to cover at inside centre and loosehead prop respectively.

Ian Humphreys has recovered from a shoulder injury and is back in the team in place of current Irish U20 fly half Paddy Jackson who won his first cap last Friday against the Scarlets.

Willie Faloon is recalled after being rested for last week's trip and he is named at openside with Chris Henry moving to blindside in place of TJ Anderson who moves to the bench.

Ulster: Adam D'Arcy, Andrew Trimble, Nevin Spence, Luke Marshall, Craig Gilroy; Ian Humphreys, Ruan Pienaar (1-8) Bryan Young, Andi Kyriacou, Declan Fitzpatrick, Johann Muller (Captain), Tim Barker, Chris Henry, Willie Faloon, Pedrie Wannenburg

Replacements: Nigel Brady, Paddy McAllister, Jerry Cronin, Ryan Caldwell, TJ Anderson, Paul Marshall, Ian Whitten, Tommy Seymour
