Ferris has been out for of action for 15 months but could return at Ravenhill on Friday night.

It comes as exciting news for Ulster, with their Heineken Cup quarter final against Saracens just over three weeks away on 5 April.

"The medics are obviously cautious," said Ulster Assistant Coach Neil Doak. "We're just playing it day by day and we have another training session tomorrow so we'll see what happens.

"He hasn't played a lot of rugby in the last couple of seasons but he has been training really hard over the last wee while and they just want to make sure and that he is as close to 100% as possible, and if it takes another extra week or 10 days then that is what we will do."

Scrum half Ruan Pienaar added: "I think everyone is excited. We have seen how hard he has worked and I think he is raring to go and I am really excited.

"Everyone will be cheering him on once he gets back on the pitch."
