Anscombe puts faith in Jackson ability

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.
