Trimble will start on the wing as his side aims to return to the Pro12's top four

By Simon Hunter

Ulster make the trip to Limerick today, hoping to return to winning ways in the Pro12.

Their six-match unbeaten run was halted by Cardiff Blues, with a 24-24 draw in Belfast.

Director of Rugby Les Kiss says they're not out of the running for the playoffs.

Their opponents today are second in the table, and nine ahead of Les Kiss' men.

For the visitors, Jacob Stockdale replaces the injured Jared Payne at fullback.


Andrew Trimble meanwhile comes into the side and will captain.

The winger is calling on his men to step up to the plate.

Back Charles Piutau says winning will require more than doing the basics.


Lock Alan O'Connor says their opponents play for the jersey.
