RECAP: Munster v Ulster
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to the Pro14 Round Six encounter between Munster and Ulster in Limerick.
Both Munster and Ulster have only suffered one defeat in five rounds this season, and both were to the same team – the Cheetahs.
Saturday’s fixture is set to be a close one with both sides gunning to keep up their winning form, particularly hosts Munster, who currently sit top of Conference B.
The Munstermen are unbeaten at home in their last 24 games in all tournaments since Leinster beat them in Round 11 of the 2017/18 season, and they have not lost to Ulster on home turf since the 2013/14 campaign.
