The young Ulster players entertained an Irish Exiles Select, on Friday 21st August, at Newforge as part of their build up to the Interprovincials.

They will also face London Irish, on Wednesday 26th August, before starting the defence of their Inter Provincial title against Munster on Friday 4th September at Queen’s Arena.

Trips to Connacht and Leinster follow on successive Fridays with the times and locations now confirmed as 17:00 at the Sportsground and 19:00 at Donnybrook.

The Under 20’s have been working closely with new coach Joe Barakat since his arrival in early July with much of the emphasis on the game close to the breakdown as well as a reinforcement of the traditional rugby values of discipline and commitment.
