Brian McLaughlin has named a 27 man squad ahead of Ulster’s clash against the Scarlets, to be played at Parc y Scarlets on Friday 5th March, 7.05pm.

Commenting on his side’s crucial Magners League game, Coach Brian McLaughlin said, "We have to go to the Scarlets really positive about our own ability to win away from home. There can be no doubt that we have been improving our away performances, it is something that we talked about at the beginning of the season, but we have to go to Llanelli and be accurate with everything we do.

"It is going to be very, very tough, they have an experienced squad and we’ll have to be clinical with the chances we create and come away with the right result."

Ulster currently sit in 6th place in the league table on 25 points with Scarlets in 9th place on 17 points.
