PADDY JACKSON will have to deal with not making the Ireland bench for Paris in the very public arena of Ravenhill tonight.

The Ireland out-half won't be the only one under the microscope as Tommy Bowe will fill the number fourteen jersey and Stephen Ferris will surely come off the bench.

The blindside will play for the first time since suffering an ankle injury in November 2012, 16 months ago.

There is a soflty-softly approach being taken with the Heineken Cup in mind.

Number eight Roger Wilson will make his 150th appearance for the northern province.

Verdict: Ulster

Ulster: J Payne; T Bowe, D Cave, S McCloskey, R Scholes; P Jackson, R Pienaar; C Black, R Herring, J Afoa, J Muller (capt), R Diack, R Wilson, S Doyle, N Williams.

Scarlets: J Williams; K Phillips, G Maule, O Barkley, F Climo; A Thomas, G Davies; P John, K Myhill, J Adriaanse, G Earle, J Snyman, J Turnbull, J Barclay, R McCusker (capt).
