IRELAND prop Tom Court and Scottish winger Simon Danielli have signed new two-year deals that will tie them to Ulster until June 2012.

Both have been included in a 27-man squad for Friday's Magners League match against Scarlets. The only new face in the panel is Ballynahinch's Ireland U-20 centre Nevin Spence.

Ireland duo Paddy Wallace and Andrew Trimble are included, but Stephen Ferris and Rory Best, who both started in the victory over England last Saturday, are rested.

Coach Brian McLaughlin knows only too well that a victory in Llanelli is a must if Ulster are to qualify for the knockout stages of the Magners League.

"We have to be really positive about our ability to win away from home," said McLaughlin. "It will be a tough test."

Ulster are in sixth place on 25 points with the Scarlets eight behind. squad in factfile
