Also named in the squad for the last game of the season is Vodafone's All-Time Favorite Ulster Rugby Player; David Humphreys. If named on the team, the game will be David's last ever game with Ulster and head coach Matt Williams commented:
"David is an iconic figure in Ulster and Irish rugby, I hope he gets out on Friday night and hope the people of Ulster turn up to say thank-you for a remarkable career"
Friday will also be a farewell to a number of big Ulster names; Mark Bartholomeusz, Justin Harrison, Neil Best, Tommy Bowe, Kieran Campbell and Roger Wilson, will all hang up their white shirts after the game.
Ulster have a score to settle with Cardiff after their last meeting at Arms Park, which saw the home-side take the victory, so in the last match of the season Ulster want to go out on a high, Matt Williams said:
"Cardiff are the power house of Welsh rugby, European Cup quarter finalists and fighting for second place in the Mangers' they will be a hand full. A win this Friday would be a great send off for our players who are going to pastures new next season and would put the team on a real positive footing for next season."
