Les Kiss' men welcome Ospreys to the Kingspan Stadium in the Guinness Pro12 tomorrow night

Ireland Captain Rory Best is back in Ulster's starting team line-up for tomorrow night's Guinness Pro12 clash at home to Ospreys.

The hooker had been rested since the tour of South Africa in the summer, before returning to the replacements last week.

Franco van der Merwe will captain in the absence of Rob Herring, who'll sit out the game due to squad management.

Van der Merwe says despite their defeat to Leinster last week, it'll be a tough game.

Herring's fellow co-skipper Andrew Trimble will also be out, recovering from a foot injury.

Paul Marshall will put on the number nine jersey, while Craig Gilroy returns on the right wing, and Charles Piutau moves back to fifteen.

Jared Payne will slot into midfield at outside centre, partnering Darren Cave, a tryscorer from last week's 22-17 win away to Glasgow Warriors.

Tommy Bowe makes his way back, on the bench, after not having appeared for the province in almost five months.

Kick-off is at 18:30.
