Heineken Cup week Stories

Preview: Ulster v Ospreys
The Ospreys will field an unchanged side for their Heineken Cup game against Ulster at Ravenhill on Friday, only the second time they have done so in their history.

Preview: Edinburgh v Leinster
Simon Webster will make his first start for Edinburgh in almost two months on Saturday when Leinster travel to Murrayfield for the Pool 6 Heineken Cup match.

The Scotland winger has not played for Edinburgh for nearly two months after suffering a succession of injuries following his first game back after the World Cup.

Preview: Cardiff Blues v Stade Français

Dai Young has made four changes to his Cardiff Blues side for their Heineken Cup clash with Stade Franзais at the Arms Park on Saturday.

After collecting a losing bonus point in Paris last Sunday head coach Dai Young was forced into one change, at fly-half, whilst feeling the need to mix it up a little elsewhere.

Webster relishing his return
Fit-again Edinburgh wing Simon Webster is relishing his comeback match against Leinster this weekend after admitting he has been a frustrated spectator.

Webster has seen Edinburgh play the positive brand of rugby he most enjoys, and will be determined to cash in when he lines up at Murrayfield in Saturday's Heineken Cup contest.
