Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
The teams for tomorrow night’s second Guinness PRO14 Semi-final between Edinburgh and Ulster have been announced. The game will be live on Premier Sports, eir Sport, SuperSport and DAZN.
Edinburgh head coach Richard Cockerill has named his team for the club’s first-ever Guinness PRO14 Semi-final which also marks the 150th club appearance for second-row Grant Gilchrist.
Stuart McInally captains a team containing 10 Scottish internationals and last year’s Guinness Players’ Player of the season Bill Mata at No 8.
Meanwhile, the visitors are competing in their ninth Championship Semi-final and will be aiming to add to their win total of just one. To do so head coach Dan McFarland has selected five Irish internationals in his team alongside Springbok-capped Marcel Coetzee and Australian Test lock Sam Carter. Ulster also have the luxury of naming six internationals on the bench.
