Ulster are sweating on the fitness of three key players ahead of their PRO14 semi-final clash with Edinburgh at Murrayfield on Saturday evening. (LIVE on eir sport 1 from 6.45pm)
Internationals Jacob Stockdale, Jordi Murphy and Stuart McCloskey were all forced off early in the disappointing 28-10 defeat to Leinster at the Aviva last weekend and head coach Dam McFarland will give them every chance to prove their fitness before naming his squad for the semi-final.
Stockdale hobbled off after suffering a bang on the, while Murphy and McCloskey also failed to complete the 80 minutes in what was a disappointing performance.
None of the three took part in training on Monday as they underwent medical attention, with McFarland unable to confirm that they would be fit for selection for the trip to Murrayfield.
"Not at the moment," McFarland said. "We will update you in the next day or two on how those guys are getting on."
