Ciarán Frawley injured his shoulder in the warm-up against Glasgow Warriors and will be further assessed as will Cian Kelleher who received stitches to a facial injury in the first half. Finally, Harry Byrne was removed for a Head Injury Assessment against Glasgow Warriors and will now follow the Graduated Return to Play Protocols this week.

There was no new injury update on the following players who remain unavailable for selection:

Tommy O’Brien (ankle), Adam Byrne (quad), Caelan Doris (concussive symptoms), Dan Leavy (knee), Conor O’Brien (knee), Max Deegan (knee) and Vakh Abdaladze (back).

so Leinster will be missing approx, 25 senior players due to injury and international camp.

As said elsewhere we need to be beating a leinster team missing its front liners no matter how good their squad is if we want to be taken seriously. Do we risk starting both Bobbie B and stockdale? I would.

Well I don't think it would be too much of a risk to start both. However it would be harsh to drop Lyttle. We will need Marcell available too.

Suppose it depends who can, or is allowed, to do 80 minutes. No doubt Stockdale will start though.

All things being equal, Lyttle will be on the bench, ready to come on and score the sixth try.

Both will play 40 and I doubt if the Leinster Ireland campers will get much over the 40 minutes either

I expect Toner to start to provide a lineout platform for Leinster

The challenge for Ulster will be to keep Leinster in their own half and avoid giving penalties to Leinster to give them position and possession and or the reverse

From the first they could power house a try from the second find relief from pressure on their own line

And I think Ulster have manufacture a few try scoring set piece moves
Within this carapace of skepticism there lives an optimist

Stockdale should start. He would be a more natural fit on the left wing. Leinster may have many players unavailable but we will have all these sh1tty non internationals. Cooney, McCloskey etc. Probably Stockdale now as he won't get his place back from Slowe or Keenan. Hendo will bench when all are fit. Leinster by 20.

You've got to get your first tackle in early, even if it's late.

Paddy Power have it Ulster 2/1, Leinster 2/5 and a draw 17/1. The handicap is 6 points.

Ulster underdogs at home, been a while since that happened surely?
