RECAP: Ulster v Cheetahs
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to our coverage of the Pro14 Round 12 encounter between Ulster and the Cheetahs ast the Kingspan Stadium.
A late Luke Price penalty saw second-placed Ulster suffer an agonising 24-26 defeat at Ospreys last weekend and fall further behind leaders Leinster. There was also disappointment for Cheetahs who had moved into Conference B’s top three with back-to-back wins over Isuzu Southern Kings only to then lose to Leinster.
But the two sides will now look ahead to this crunch clash at the Kingspan Stadium on Saturday, both aiming to get their campaigns back on track.
