Ulster
Rabo Direct Pro 12 Round 19

Ulster v Connacht
Friday 11th April 2014
On TV: BBC NI


After a dramatic and ultimately heartbreaking Heineken Cup defeat to Saracens, Ulster will be hoping to pick up the pieces and re-ignite their play off challenge at home to Connacht. After over half a century without a victory in Belfast not many will expect a Connacht victory on Friday. Connacht's slim top 6 hopes probably evaporated last time out in a narrow double bonus point loss to Scarlets but Pat Lam and his side will still hope to finish the season strongly to give Connacht their best ever points finish and provide some optimism heading into next season.
