Ulster Director of Rugby Les Kiss reshuffles his pack as the team aims to return to winning ways away to Scottish side Edinburgh

Aaron Cairns could make his senior debut for Ulster after being named among the replacements for the PRO 12 clash with Edinburgh on Friday night.

The Ulster academy player is one of several changes made by Les Kiss for the clash at Murrayfield.

Brett Herron, Rob Lyttle and Sam Windsor come in to start in the backline, with Pete Browne and Clive Ross joining the pack.

The front five is unchanged from the one that faced Munster last weekend; Callum Black, Rob Herring and Wiehahn Herbst occupy the front row spots, while Dan Tuohy and Franco van der Merwe continue in the second row.

Browne will start in the number six jersey for the first time.

Ruan Pienaar and Herron are selected in the half back positions, while Windsor will earn his third cap when he lines out in midfield alongside Luke Marshall.

Lyttle will be joined in the back three by experienced internationals Tommy Bowe and Charles Piutau.

Ulster are aiming to return to winning ways after losing to Munster at Kingspan Stadium in the last round of fixtures.
