Match Preview | Ulster (H)
It’s Ulster who travel to face Glasgow under the lights this Friday at Scotstoun, as your Warriors come out of their short break ready to face Ulster at home.
Glasgow are sitting fifth, with Ulster in third place in the league and Friday is set to be another crowd pleasing close match.
From the last three times the sides have come up against one another, Ulster have come out on top. However, Glasgow have been unbeaten since the end of November and haven’t lost a home game in over a year.
Set to be a hard game between two sides on Friday, looking at past results show that Ulster have won just two of their last five BKT URC games. Glasgow will be keen to continue on with their unbeaten form on Friday.
Both teams have had players out in international camp for their respective countries, but both have had some players released back to them ahead of the game. Bringing back the experience of Six Nations for Glasgow include Jack Dempsey, Jamie Bhatti, Fraser Brown and Simon Berghan with Ollie Smith, Stafford McDowall and Ali Price also coming back in for this game.
Glasgow Warriors with the depth and availability of players show no signs of wavering in terms of form with many younger players stepping up to complete the squad. Scott Cummings is also due to come back following his injury.
Even though Glasgow have an unbeaten run of nine games, Ulster will be coming in having won all seven fixtures they have played against Scottish opponents since September 2020. Ulster will be keen to continue that streak and win away from home.
