Ulster host Treviso in the Pro12 tonight, hoping to continue their post-Champions Cup unbeaten run.

Andrew Trimble, Craig Gilroy and Jared Payne will start in the backline, while forward Marcell Coetzee is back from illness.

Les Kiss' men are five points off the top four in the table.

Speaking on our podcast 'The Breakdown', Tommy Bowe says the squad's feeling confident.


Fellow-winger Craig Gilroy says they'll be looking to add to their recent bonus point wins.

Prop Callum Black says the guys are excited for the challenge ahead.
