Ulster include two changes to the team to face Toulouse on Sunday at Stade Ernest Wallon )1pm GMT) in the European Champions Cup pool one match.
Chris Henry is ruled out with a shoulder injury, but is expeted to be fit to face Connacht in the Guinness PRO12 on Boxing Day (December 26).
Sean Reidy, who will make his Champions Cup debut start, comes into the number seven berth and the other change is also in the backrow with Roger Wilson starting in a straight swap with Nick Williams who is on the bench.
The remainder of the starting line-up is the same from that which defeated Toulouse 38-0 at Kingspan Stadium, Belfast, last Friday.
