Marcel Coetzee has returned from the Rugby World Cup to take his place in Ulster's 28-man squad to travel to South Africa to play the Toyota Cheetahs and Isuzu Southern Kings over the next two weekends.

The Springbok picked up an injury in a World Cup warm-up which cost Coetzee his seat to Japan.

New signings Sam Carter, Matt Faddes and Jack McGrath all earned their first caps for the Province last weekend and Bill Johnston will travel in search of his first cap.

Backs (12): Billy Burns, John Cooney, Angus Curtis, Matt Faddes, Craig Gilroy, James Hume, Bill Johnston, Michael Lowry, Louis Ludik, Rob Lyttle, Luke Marshall, David Shanahan.
