Ulster playmaker Paddy Wallace will return from a nine-month injury absence in Friday's RaboDirect Pro12 match against Zebre at Ravenhill.

The 34-year-old tore knee ligaments when playing against Glasgow in February, and returns to senior action after two British and Irish Cup outings for the second-string Ulster Ravens.

Head coach Mark Anscombe has made nine changes to the side that beat Treviso last weekend.

Wallace, who will start at inside centre, admits he cannot wait to add to his already record appearance tally of 188 for his home province.

"My motivation is through the roof," he said.

"I hope that I can bring a few players along with me because I am so pumped up to play again at Ravenhill.

"So many people have supported me through a hard time such as the medical stuff and the strength and conditioning coaches and I want to do their support justice."
