Anscombe Leaves His Heavy Hitters Home
28th December 2012 By jess
Ulster bring a much changed and unfamiliar squad to Thomond Park Stadium tomorrow as they go in search of their 12th successive RaboDirect PRO 12 victory of the season.
And in making 11 changes from the side that saw off Leinster in Ravenhill last weekend, coach Mark Anscombe has selected a combination of Academy and Ulster Ravens with just four players in the starting line-up that began the game in Ravenhill last time the sides met.
Fifteen of Anscombe’s match day squad were involved in the Ravens British & Irish Cup win over Cardiff RFC a fortnight ago.
Ulster last week equalled Leinster’s best ever start to a PRO12 season with eleven straight victories, and have won all eight away games they have played in all competitions this season.
Ulster: A D’Arcy; C Cochrane, M Allen, L Marshall, C Gilroy; N O’Connor, P Marshall; C Black, R Herring, A Macklin; L Stevenson, N McComb; R Diack, M McComish, R Wilson. Replacements: N Annett, R Litton, T Court, A O’Connor, A Birch, M Heaney, S Olding, R Andrew.
