Ireland international wings Tommy Bowe and Andrew Trimble will start for Ulster in a pre-season game against Edinburgh at Goldenacre on Friday night (6.30pm).

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt and his management team will closely monitor their progress ahead of disclosing the 31-man World Cup squad to the players at Carton House on Sunday.

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.

In the front row Andrew Warwick and Wiehahn Herbst start either side of Rob Herring who is selected at hooker.

Dan Tuohy and Franco van der Merwe are paired in the second-row with Clive Ross, Sean Reidy and Robbie Diack picked in the back-row.
