Ulster Rugby has no new injury concerns following Friday’s win against Benetton.

Marty Moore suffered a concussion in training last week, and he is currently following the concussion Return to Play protocols.

Kieran Treadwell, Rob Lyttle, Eric O’Sullivan, Robert Baloucoune and David O’Connor have all now resumed full team training following their recent respective periods of unavailability.

The scrum could be an issue for us this week, having watched the arm wrestle the Lions had against Glasgow.

Glasgow’s early, but match-winning, try was dubious, to say the least.

Scrum is an issue every week. Marty is the only decent scrummaging tight head. Loosehead options are not terrific. EOS probably the pick of the bunch without JMcG.

We can usually get by in the league but with SA teams usually scrummaging well it might be another area of concern.

Same backline as last week and a few rotations in the forwards.

The physical flanker Kriel is missing, as is the veteran Jannie du Plessis in the front row.

He sounds more suited to the bench (to borrow an old Snipe Watson gag).

Reckon this will be the biggest test yet of the season. These guys have been living in each others pockets for weeks and this is their last game before going home. We always struggle against a bit physical team and our cutting edge so far has been poor. Will be a good watch to see how the younger guys step up again.

They lost 13-9 on the 4G at Scotstoun, but previous to that beaten heavily at Scarlets which is not a good look after the Scarlets' last outing and they beat Zebre, but everyone has beaten Zebre so far etc. Depends which version shows up Week 3 v Week 2.

Any kind of win would be great. With the hope of some more players returning for Connacht away. Before the w@nkfest of autumn internationals.
