Ulster's 2016/17 PRO12 fixtures released

Post by ADM »

[tag=image]http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/e ... 2_Logo.jpg[/tag][tag=content]Ulster’s fixture list for the 2016/17 Guinness PRO12 season has been released with Les Kiss’ side starting their campaign at home to the Newport-Gwent Dragons.

Ulster will welcome the Dragons to the Kingspan Stadium on Friday 2nd September at 7:35pm.

This will be followed by a visit to Treviso (Sat 10th), a home tie against the Scarlets (Fri 16th) and then a trip to Scotstoun to face the Glasgow Warriors (Fri 23rd) to round off a very difficult opening month.

As a new addition to the schedules, tournament organisers have introduced six “Big Weekends” which will be comprised solely of intra-union derbies, with the Italian-Scottish rivalry given more exposure on these weekends.

Ulster’s first interpro will be against defending champions Connacht in Galway on Friday 7th October, which is quickly followed by the visit of Munster to the Kingspan Stadium after the Champions’ Cup break on Friday 28th October.

In a slight rejig to the usual Christmas period, Ulster will welcome Connacht to Belfast on Friday 23rd December before playing Leinster in Dublin on New Year’s Eve.

Like always there is a tough end to the season for the Ulstermen with their final three fixtures featuring trips to Munster and the Ospreys before finishing at home to Leinster on Saturday 6th May.
