Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin has brought back his Irish internationals ahead of Friday’s Magners League match away to Glasgow (kick-of 8.05pm).

Rory Best, Andrew Trimble, Paddy Wallace and Tom Court, who all featured in Ireland’s emphatic 24-8 victory over England at the Aviva Stadium last weekend, return to a 36-man squad.

Simon Danielli also returns having featured for Scotland in their win over Italy last Saturday while young winger Conor Gaston is named in the squad for the second week running.

Darren Cave and Tommy Seymour, who both came off the bench last weekend following spells on the sideline with injury, are named in the squad once more.

Last Friday’s win over the Dragons, thanks to a last-minute drop goal from Ruan Pienaar, was a massive result for Ulster who now sit fourth in the Magners League table.

McLaughlin’s side are on a great run of form at present, recording victories in their last four outings but must continue that momentum to remain in the hunt for a play-off spot.

Ulster: Jerry Cronin, Declan Fitzpatrick, Tom Court, Adam Macklin, Paddy McAllister, Bryan Young, Rory Best, Nigel Brady, Andi Kyriacou, Ryan Caldwell, Neil McComb, Dan Tuohy, Johann Muller, Tim Barker, Pedrie Wannenburg, TJ Anderson, Willie Faloon, Chris Henry, Robbie Diack, Ruan Pienaar, Paul Marshall, Patrick Jackson, Niall O'Connor, Ian Whitten, Nevin Spence, Paddy Wallace, Darren Cave, Mark McCrea, Andrew Trimble, Simon Danielli, Tommy Seymour, Craig Gilroy, Conor Gaston, David McIlwaine, Jamie Smith, Adam D'Arcy.
