Ulster at full strength for Heineken Cup decider
There is precious little surprise in the Ulster team named to take on Leinster in the mouthwatering Heineken Cup Final at Twickenham tomorrow.
Brian McLaughlin has made just the two changes from the XV that nervously defeated Edinburgh in the semi-final, with John Afoa returning from suspension to partner Rory Best and Tom Court in the front row.
In the other change, the influential Chris Henry taking his place in the back row alongside man mountain Stephen Ferris and Pedrie Wannenburg, who will be playing his last game in an Ulster jersey.
As expected, Paddy Jackson retains the number ten jersey, with Ian Humphreys on the bench in his last game before joining London Irish, while Craig Gilroy, Paddy Wallace, Darren Cave and Andrew Trimble form an impressive looking three-quarter line.
As if we needed to tell you, the Heineken Cup Final kicks off at Twickenham at 5pm tomorrow, so whatever plans you might have made for that time that aren’t a matter of life or death, just cancel them, this is infinitely more important.
Ulster team to play Leinster: Stefan Terblanche; Andrew Trimble, Darren Cave, Paddy Wallace, Craig Gilroy; Paddy Jackson, Ruan Pienaar; Tom Court, Rory Best, John Afoa, Johann Muller (Captain), Dan Tuohy, Stephen Ferris, Chris Henry, Pedrie Wannenburg
Replacements: Nigel Brady, Paddy McAllister, Declan Fitzpatrick, Lewis Stevenson, Willie Faloon, Paul Marshall, Ian Humphreys, Adam D’Arcy
