Ulster coach Anscombe says Jackson will be a great player

Ulster coach Mark Jackson says Paddy Jackson was "keen" to be offered the Ulster kicking duties for Friday's clash against Treviso.

"We're keen for him to have a game and do some kicking and get some confidence," said Anscombe.

Normally, Irish Six Nations starters do not play for the provinces in the Pro12 a week later but following discussions between the Ulster and Ireland managements, Jackson will start against Treviso at Ravenhill.
