John Cooney returns to the Ulster starting line-up for Sunday’s Heineken Champions Cup quarter-final against Toulouse in France.

Ulster head-coach Dan McFarland has made four changes from last week's Guinness Pro14 final defeat to Leinster.

Cooney will be paired with Billy Burns at fly-half, while the rest of the starting backline remains unchanged.
