Stephen Ferris: Could face Sarries

Fit-again Ulster flank Stephen Ferris features on the list of additional players for the upcoming knockout stages of the Heineken Cup.

Saracens' Will Fraser, Gonzalo Camacho of Leicester Tigers and the vastly-experienced Clermont back-row, Elvis Vermeulen, also feature.

Ferris, who played in the 2012 Heineken Cup final, is currently on the comeback trail following a long-term ankle injury.

The 28-year-old will be in contention for a starting place against Saracens in the quarter-final at Ravenhilll.
