READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to the European Cup Round Six encounter between Ulster and Bath at Kingspan Stadium.
Ulster coach Dan McFarland knows that a win against Bath will seal his side’s spot in the quarterfinals for the second consecutive season.
The Irish province sit second in Pool Three, having been beaten by ASM Clermont Auvergne in Round Five and dropped below the Challenge Cup winners as a result.
If Ulster win they will be guaranteed a quarterfinal place for the seventh time in their history either as Pool 3 winners or as the best runner-up (ranked No.6) depending on the result of the Harlequins v Clermont match.
