Louis Ludik returns from injury and will partner Luke Marshall in midfield
Chris Henry will make his first appearance for Ulster this season as they take on Zebre tomorrow night.
The back row will earn his 151st cap for the province.
Louis Ludik also returns from injury and will be at thirteen, alongside Luke Marshall in midfield.
Craig Gilroy is back from international duty and will be on the bench.
