Michael Heaney ready to take Ulster opportunity against Zebre

Ulster scrum-half Michael Heaney is hoping to be handed an opportunity to impress in Saturday's Pro12 game against Zebre in Parma.

Heaney has made a couple of appearances as a replacement as the Irish province emerged unbeaten from their opening three fixtures of the new campaign.

"We are expecting a tough physical battle against Zebre - we will have to be patient with the ball and wait for our chances to come," conceded Heaney.
