Ulster have named five new signings in their squad to face Bath in Friday's pre-season friendly at Ravenhill.
Coach Matt Williams has included Timoci Nagussa, Clinton Schifcofske, Ed O'Donoghue, Robbie Diack and Cillian Willis in his 23-man squad.
Of the summer’s new signings only Ian Humphreys is set to miss out.
Williams has also given an opportunity to three academy players to show their worth - Ian Whitten, Chris Cochrane and Willie Fallon have been training with the senior squad during the summer.
"It is great to get the younger players from the academy to train with us and to expose them to the level that the seniors play at," said Williams.
"We will try to blood them against Bath and expose them to a quality side to see how they get on.
"They need to know how big a jump it is to the professional standard.
"They are three good young players and the academy players really are the future of the club."
