    Fixtures for this season confirmed. Less of direct clash with AIL which is good.

    I'm not 100% sure how much value it will be as a lot of the players of the type who would have been in the squad last year will be in the senior squad filling in for players at the world Cup.

    Most of the games are before the Pro 14 begins so I'd say a lot of teams will use them as Pre Season friendlies

    Connacht will be fairly disappointed with themselves, a lot of errors and weren't able to put phases together so they were never really in the game. Quite a lot of poor lineout throws, a few overthrown and a few not straight, which kept giving Ulster back possession. Seemed to have the upperhand at scrum time, but not enough to really make an impact on the game.

    Ulster were just clinical with their chance, and were better at retaining possession with their lineouts and in open play. The game wasn't glamorous, forwards played well and with Connacht not on form it was a fairly straightforward win.
