It's another off week for the Six Nations this week and that means more URC action for us to enjoy this weekend. Ulster are flying high in second place in the URC table and they host Cardiff at the Kingspan Stadium where they hope to continue the good run of form they're in. Here's how to watch Ulster vs Cardiff and a match preview.

Match Preview

Ulster are on a good run of form at the moment having won their last three games in a row. Last time out they won in the gale force winds and rain in Newport as they beat the Dragons 12-0 in Rodney Parade. They've jumped up to second place in the URC table now, just behind Leinster in first.

Jordi Murphy returns to the starting lineup as James Hume, Nick Timoney and Rob Baloucoune come back from the Ireland Six Nations camp to start. John Cooney has recovered from injury and will start on the bench. Iain Henderson will captain the side in second row after recovering from a positive Covid test that ruled him out of the Ireland vs Italy game.



Cardiff aren't having the best of seasons this year. They may have beaten Leinster a few weeks ago but they still sit lowly in twelfth place. It hasn't been a good season for any of the Welsh sides in the URC as three out of the four sides are in the bottom five of the league.

Cardiff come to Belfast starting with an elite backrow as Ellis Jenkins, James Botham and a returning Josh Navidi who plays for the first time since October and the Welsh international will bring a much needed boost to the Cardiff team.
