Coetzee back from injury as Ulster bid to ramp up for Europe against Kings

ULSTER HEAD COACH Dan McFarland has been able to recall back row Marcell Coetzee for tomorrow’s Pro14 meeting with the Southern Kings (kick-off 17.30, eir Sport).

The powerful South African has not featured for Ulster since January’s Heineken Champions Cup win away to Leicester, but will hope to get match fit ahead of the quarter-final clash with Leinster at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday week.

U20 Grand Slam-winner Angus Kernohan and senior international John Cooney are among the replacements for the northern province.

Along with Coetzee, Matty Rea, Ian Nagle and Andy Warwick are given starting berths with Dave Shanahan slotting in alongside Billy Burns at half-back while Darren Cave and Stuart McCloskey man the midfield.
