Ulster coach Mark Anscombe has named the same side that took to the field at Ravenhill last Saturday for tomorrow afternoon’s return fixture against Treviso.
The Pool Five leaders travel to Italy with another bonus point win the target after putting almost 50 points on Treviso in Belfast last weekend.
And for the first time since taking charge of the province in 2012 Anscombe has selected the same matchday squad for consecutive games.
”I was aware at the end of last season that I was sitting in the high 80s so I knew I was going to hit it at some point this year,” Tuohy said today. “It’s nice and it’s something that I will look back on at the end of my career and be proud of. Having reached 100 appearances for Ulster is definitely special.”
Ulster: Jared Payne; Andrew Trimble, Darren Cave, Luke Marshall, Craig Gilroy; Paddy Jackson, Ruan Pienaar; Tom Court, R Herring, John Afoa; Johann Muller, Dan Tuohy; Robbie Diack, Sean Doyle, Roger Wilson. Replacements: Niall Annett, Callum Black, Declan Fitzpatrick, Neil McComb, Mike McComish, Paul Marshall, Michael Allen, David McIlwaine.
