GAA: FEATHER'S IN THE CAP FOR ULSTER.

Byline: MICHAEL SCULLY

CAMERON Feather has been named as Ulster captain for the Celtic Cup clash with Cardiff Blues.

With 12 players unavailable because of international commitments of due to injury, Mark McCall has made three enforced changes from the side that beat Borders last weekend in a bottom of the table encounter.

Back-row Feather is seen as a natural choice for the role in the absence of flanker Andy Ward, who injured his knee last weekend and has been ruled out of contention.

"Campbell is a born leader," insisted McCall, handing the captaincy to Feather for the first time. "He has got the respect of the whole squad and leads by example on the pitch."

With Tyrone Howe also injured, Andrew Maxwell moves to the left wing and Scott Young covers for Maxwell on the right. In the pack, Ronan McCormack replaces Simon Best, who is on Ireland duty.

Matt McCullough moves to the openside and Gary Longwell replaces him the second-row. Craig Quinnell is rated as doubtful with a leg problem for Cardiff.

ULSTER: Cunningham, Young, Bell, Steinmetz, Maxwell, Larkin, Campbell; McCormack, Shields, Moore, Longwell, Frost, McCullough, N Best, Feather.
