Ulster's 2014/15 Pro12 fixtures released

[tag=image]http://wordinsport.com/wp-content/uploa ... ax_801.jpg[/tag][tag=content]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 Champions’ Cup pool, before facing Zebre twice in their next three games with a trip to the Cardiff Blues in between.

Following that Ulster have a run of four home games in a row against Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newport-Gwent Dragons and the Ospreys which is then broken by a trip to Thomond Park to face Munster in late November.

There is a change to the normal Christmas scheduling which sees Ulster face Connacht on Boxing Day at the Kingspan Stadium, with the usual game against Leinster a week later at the RDS Arena.

The difficult final three games come amongst the latter stages of the Champions’ Cup as well which makes Ulster’s finish even more difficult than it looks.

The exact dates and times will be announced in the near future.
