Teams are up for tomorrow’s Champions Cup make or break clash at Ravenhill against Oyonnax. Kick off 13:00 Live on Sky Sports.

Les Kiss has continued to plan for a busy end to the season with his, now traditional, squad rotation which sees Stuart McCloskey resting and Darren Cave making a welcome return.

Knocks and illness have also had their say with Rory Best dropping to the bench, with Rob Herring starting and Ruan Pienaar is replaced by Paul Marshall.

Still no Chris Henry, so Sean Reidy maintains his starting spot and Nick Williams is restored to No 8 with Roger Wilson benching.

The Ulster forwards will need to hit their straps somewhat quicker than they did in the last meeting between these teams and if they do I expect a high tempo game with Paul Marshall dictating the pace. Replacement Shanahan also plays a high tempo game when he gets the opportunity so I’d guess Ulster have pretty much settled on this tactic but, as I said, it’s all going to depend on the big boys up front.

Fast paced, nippy scrum halves keeping defences honest, Darren Cave controlling the midfield and Payne joining from deep. What’s not to like!

The FRU Predicts: We’re predicting a high scoring game, for both sides, with Ulster getting the five points. This will be followed by a nervy 36 hours while we wait on other results!
