Ulster have opted to name a weakened team for their Boxing Day encounter against Leinster in the RaboDirect Pro 12.

Watch the RaboDirect Pro 12 Rugby on BBC2 on Monday, December 26 at 1730 GMT.

Leinster are currently top of the pile with 35 points after winning eight of their opening 10 matches, while Ulster are down in eighth spot with just five wins under their belt.

Because of a hectic period of matches over Christmas Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin has been forced to use his entire squad and will display five players on debut on Monday.

There are three debutants in the backs with centres Chris Farrell and Michael Allen joining full-back Peter Nelson in the starting line-up, while Callum Black starts at loosehead prop fro his first start and academy Ali Birch also gets the nod.

Leinster's Gordon D'Arcy will start at centre, while David Kearney has been rewarded with a place on the right wing after bagging a brace of tries against Cardiff earlier this month.

Leinster are obvious favourites to win this match because of their league position and can be backed at 1.33 odds-on with Paddy Power, while the visitors are 12/1 to grab a shock victory. The draw can be backed at 40/1.

Ulster have been given no chance whatsoever in this game and have a 25.5 points head start on the handicap betting market at 3/4, while Leinster -25.5 is available at 10/11.

Leinster are 7/1 to win the game by 16-20 points, while you can get odds of 125/1 that Ulster’s weak side really gels together and manages to secure a win by more than 20 points.
