Form Guide

Ulster are in possibly their worst rut since Dan McFarland took over as head coach of the province. However, despite a comeback loss to Leinster, a hammering from Sale Sharks, a game they through away against Munster, and a loss last weekend to Benetton, they remain fourth in the URC and still have a decent shot at making the Champions Cup knockout stages.


Although to come away with anything away to La Rochelle, they will have to dig deep into their souls.


La Rochelle could take zero points from their next two Champions Cup fixtures and still qualify for the next round, which is good news for Ulster.

However, they do look to be in imperious form, lying in third place in the Top 14, coming off the back of 30-7 hammering dished out to league leaders Toulouse on Saturday.
