Ulster Star Forced To Pull Out Of Tonight’s Game After Suffering Eye Trauma

Man down.

Ulster will head into tonight’s PRO14 fixture with reigning champions the Scarlets without back-row Jean Deysel.

The South African bulldozer was originally named in the starting line-up for the Kingspan clash, but has been forced to withdraw with minor eye trauma.

As a result Matty Rea will now start with Clive Ross coming onto the bench.

(1-8): Kyle McCall, Rob Herring, Wiehahn Herbst, Kieran Treadwell, Alan O’Connor, Matthew Rea, Chris Henry (captain), Sean Reidy;

Replacements (16-23): John Andrew, Andrew Warwick, Rodney Ah You, Robbie Diack, Clive Ross, Paul Marshall, Peter Nelson, Tommy Bowe.
