Ulster wait on Payne, Henry back

Date published: April 10 2017

Ulster are sweating over the fitness of Jared Payne ahead of facing Munster on Saturday, with the player struggling with an ankle injury.

Payne, who started in the full-back jersey against Cardiff Blues over the weekend, will be monitored ahead of the derby clash in Limerick.

In one piece of positive news, however, back-row Chris Henry is back in contention for selection this week after recovering from a niggle.

Ulster are currently fifth in the PRO12 standings while Munster sit in second position, nine points ahead of them but two behind Leinster.
