Bowe and Trimble to line out for Ulster
World Cup hopefuls to get run out against Edinburgh in pre-season friendly this Friday evening
Ireland’s Tommy Bowe will be hoping for an eyecatching performance against Edinburgh.
Trimble, injured after 34 minutes of Ireland’s victory in Cardiff earlier this month, hasn’t played for Ulster since October 2014 having missed much of last season with a toe injury. He is selected on the left wing, Bowe starts on the right, with fellow international, Craig Gilroy, named at fullback.
Luke Marshall moves out to 13 with Stuart McCloskey starting alongside him at inside-centre. Ian Humphreys and Paul Marshall, who scored a try in last week’s run out against Leinster, continue in the halfbacks. In the front row Andrew Warwick and Wiehahn Herbst start either side of Rob Herring who is selected at hooker.
Ulster: C Gilroy, T Bowe, L Marshall, S McCloskey, A Trimble, I Humphreys, P Marshall; A Warwick, R Herring (Captain) W Herbst; D Tuohy, F Van der Merwe; C Ross, S Reidy, R Diack. Replacements (from): P Jackson, R Murphy, R Lutton, P Browne, W Faloon, D Shanahan, S Windsor, S Arnold, L Ludik, P Nelson, C Joyce.
