Connacht v Ulster Preview

Connacht face Ulster this Friday Night in the Quarter Final of the United Rugby Championship at Kingspan Stadium (Kick-off, 7.35pm).

For Connacht, this is only their fourth game in the knockout stages of this competition since its foundation as the Celtic League in the 2001/02 season. In those previous year, they reached the Quarter Final in 2001/02 and 2002/03 and again in 2015/16 when they won the competition.

Connacht and Ulster have met only once before in the knockout phase. Ulster won 21-13 in the 18/19 season.
