Exciting runner Charles Piutau will miss Ulster’s Pro12 game away to Benetton Treviso on Saturday with a minor thumb injury.

The full-back sustained the problem in training this week but is expected to be able to face the Scarlets at the Kingspan Stadium on September 16 - which be a great relief to coach Les Kiss.

Scrum-half Paul Marshall faces a couple of weeks on the sidelines with a rib cartilage injury suffered late in Ulster’s 29-8 victory over the Dragons.

Craig Gilroy will also sit out the trip to Italy as he overcomes concussion.
