Madigan at out-half among seven changes for Ulster’s final game of the season

SOMEWHAT DEPLETED BY injuries and the positive Covid-19 cases that forced the cancellation of last weekend’s game against Scarlets, the Ulster team for tomorrow’s meeting with Edinburgh has been unveiled by head coach Dan McFarland.

In their final game of the 2020-21 season, the northern province will face the Scottish side in a Rainbow Cup fixture at Murrayfield [KO 5.15pm, Eir Sport 2].

McFarland’s side, captained by British & Irish Lions lock Iain Henderson, shows seven changes from the one that started in the defeat to Leinster at the RDS last time out.

Ian Madigan comes in at out-half to replace Billy Burns, while the other two changes among the backs see Rob Lyttle and Matt Faddes replace Jacob Stockdale and Rob Baloucoune.

Kyle McCall and Adam McBurney are selected in the front row, with Eric O’Sullivan and Rob Herring missing out. Alan O’Connor replaces Sam Carter as Henderson’s second-row partner. Marcus Rea starts in the back row in place of Sean Reidy.
