Cardiff Blues centre Rey Lee-Lo will miss Friday’s trip to Ulster after returning to training at the Arms Park following the World Cup.
The Samoan has started training with his club team-mates this week but after two months away from home will not travel to Belfast, instead staying in Cardiff to prepare for the visit of Munster a week Saturday.
He only featured once out in Japan, in Manu Samoa’s opening game against Russia. He scored a try against Lyn Jones’ side but received a yellow card for a high tackle for which he was subsequently cited and banned for three games, ending his tournament prematurely.
Cardiff Blues head coach John Mulvihill will also be without Owen Lane for the trip to Ulster after the winger was called up to the Wales squad this week, while Dmitri Arhip is a doubt following a shoulder injury sustained against Glasgow.
Jason Harries and Scott Andrews are slated to start in their places.
