Tuohy named in Ulster squad
Rugby: Ireland international Dan Tuohy returns to the provisional Ulster squad following injury for Friday’s RaboDirect PRO12 game against Glasgow at Scotstoun Stadium (7.35pm).Academy players Alan O’Connor, James Simpson and Conor Joyce have been added to the panel as have front row players Ricky Lutton and Andrew Warwick.
Half backs Paul Marshall and Niall O’Connor have also been named after missing last week’s match against Zebre. The 27 year old winger Dublin born Neil Walsh, a late replacement in that game, may get another opportunity this Friday against the Scottish outfit.
