Ulster have been given a tricky finish to their Guinness Pro12 season with today’s fixture release which sees them play their three play-off compatriots from last season.
Ulster’s final three matches are against interprovincial rivals Leinster and Munster at the Kingspan Stadium, while their concluding match will be at the Scotstoun Stadium against the Glasgow Warriors.
Last season’s fourth placed finishers begin their campaign away to Welsh outfit the Scarlets, who are also in their...
Following the departure of previous Director of Rugby, David Humphreys, Les Kiss has been confirmed as the new interim DOR for Ulster Rigby.
In a statement earlier today, Ulster confirmed that Les will step into the breach from July 19th.
The aim being that this will allow time for a review of the coaching structures at Ulster Rugby to take place, & to give time for the long search for a truly exceptional coach to be found later this year.

On a cold, wet and windy night at Thomond Park, Ulster’s fringe players produced a spectacular performance to inflict Munster’s second home defeat of the season, triumphing 19-17.
It appeared that the team were galvanised by the fact that they were written off beforehand by pundits and fans alike, but a try from Michael Heaney and fourteen points from the boot of man-of-the-match James McKinney saw the visitors take all four points.
