Ulster Rugby will be back to almost full strength when they go into their Heineken Cup quarter-final dress-rehearsal against RaboDirect PRO12 leaders Leinster on Saturday.
The week before they take on the top side in England, Saracens, at Twickenham Stadium for a semi-final slot in Europe, Mark Anscombe's team wuill be looking to rediscover their early season form.
When Ulster beat Leinster at Ravenhill earlier in the season they were 16 points ahead of them in the PRO12 table and well clear at the top. After last weekend's defeat to Edinburgh at Murrayfield they slipped to third, a point adrift of Irish rivals Leinster.
"I hope we can get it right in the coming weeks. It did look a little disjointed at times out there," admitted Anscombe in the wake of his side's defeat to Edinburgh.
"Sometimes when you get players back, especially your top players, there is the expectation that things will just happen. It just not happen like that unfortunately.
"Everyone involved must take responsibility for their own performance and how they prepare for a match. For some of our players it was their first game back in six weeks and you cannot expect them to be right up there."
Springbok scrum half Ruan Pienaar and Irish international back row men Iain Henderson, Chris Henry and Roger Wilson have all recovered from injury and are included in the squad to face Leinster at the RDS on Saturday night (kick-off 6.15pm).
British & Irish Lions candidates Rory Best and Craig Gilroy also return after a week off following the RBS 6 Nations.
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
