Ulster head coach Dan McFarland has named an unchanged starting team and bench for Friday's Heineken Champions Cup match against Scarlets at Kingspan Stadium.

The Ulster men registered a superb bonus point win against last season’s semi-finalists at Parc y Scarlets last week.

The game will see Rory Best become Ulster’s most capped player in the European competition on 72, moving one ahead of Andrew Trimble.

Best will again captain the side and will pack down in the front row beside Marty Moore and Eric O’Sullivan.

Iain Henderson and Kieran Treadwell are paired together in the second row, while Sean Reidy, Jordi Murphy and Marcell Coetzee will combine in the back row.

Billy Burns will again partner John Cooney at half-back, with Stuart McCloskey and Will Addison retained in midfield.

Jacob Stockdale is selected in the back three alongside the experienced Louis Ludik and Henry Speight.

Kyle McCall, who was recalled to the squad last week after a six-month spell on the sidelines through injury, could make his 50th Ulster appearance if called upon from the bench.

Rob Herring, Tom O’Toole, Matty Rea and Nick Timoney are the other forward replacements, with Dave Shanahan, Johnny McPhillips and Darren Cave providing cover for the backline

Ulster team: L Ludik; H Speight, W Addison, S McCloskey, J Stockdale; B Burns, J Cooney; E O’Sullivan, R Best, M Moore, I Henderson, K Treadwell, S Reidy, J Murphy, M Coetzee;
