CAPTAIN Johann Muller has been ruled out of their of Ulster’s Heineken Cup game against Northampton at Ravenhill tomorrow evening.
The South African is sidelined with a displaced fracture in his arm so 20-year-old Iain Henderson has moved into the second row alongside Dan Tuohy.
The knock-on effect sees Nick Williams promoted from the bench to fill the vacant loose forward spot, and Chris Henry captain the side.
Ulster will be hoping to continue their impressive unbeaten streak, most recently beating the Saints 25-6 at Franklin’s Gardens last Friday.
ULSTER J Payne; T Bowe, D Cave, P Wallace, A Trimble; P Jackson, R Pienaar; T Court, R Best, J Afoa, I Henderson, D Tuohy, N Williams, C Henry (capt), R Wilson.
Replacements: N Brady, C Black, R Lutton, N McComb, R Diack, P Marshall, L Marshall, C Gilroy.
