Marcus Horan will continue his comeback from injury as the newly re-branded Ireland Wolfhounds take on Scotland 'A' at Ravenhill on Friday.

Horan started last weekend's defeat to England Saxons in Bath and has been given another chance to prove his fitness and play some part in Ireland's Six Nations campaign.

Ulster No.8 Chris Henry leads the side and his provincial team-mate Ian Humphreys starts at fly-half following Paddy Wallace's call-up to the Ireland squad to face Italy.

Connacht's Sean Cronin replaces Rory Best, also with the full squad, at hooker while Tony Buckley again gets the nod at tight-head. Dan Tuohy replaces Sean O'Brien in the back-row, with Leinster's O'Brien on the bench for the Italy clash. Ryan Caldwell is named in the second-row ahead of Mick O'Driscoll.

Ireland Wolfhounds: G Duffy (Connacht); J Murphy (Leicester), D Cave (Ulster), F McFadden (Leinster), I Dowling (Munster); I Humphreys (Ulster), P Stringer (Munster); M Horan (Munster), S Cronin (Connacht) T Buckley (Munster), R Caldwell (Ulster), D Toner (Leinster), D Tuohy (Ulster), S Jennings (Leinster), C Henry (Ulster, capt)

Replacements: N Brady (Ulster), M Ross (Leinster), E O'Donghue (Ulster), N Ronan (Munster), I Boss (Ulster), I Keatley (Connacht), K Matthews (Connacht)
