Ulster get the chance to finish off the Champions Cup pool stage with a 100% record at home when they host Clermont-Auvergne at Ravenhill on Saturday. They've been really good so far this season and have already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions Cup but another win could give them the best possible chance of going far in the competition. Here's how to watch Ulster vs Clermont-Auvergne and team news.

How to watch Ulster vs Clermont-Auvergne

Ulster host Clermont at Ravenhill on Saturday 22nd January and kick off is at 5:30pm.

The game is live on BT Sport 3 and coverage starts at 5:15pm.

Team News

Ulster have made good use of their squad throughout the season so far. Many star players like Iain Henderson and John Cooney have missed major game time due to injuries but Ulster are able to plug in the gaps left behind by them and win. Dan McFarland has built an impressively deep and strong squad full of youth and talent and they'll be called upon again this weekend.


Unfortunately prop Andy Warwick got a concussion during the trip to Northampton and Jacob Stockdale has had surgery on an ankle injury that will keep him out for the foreseeable future. They join Iain Henderson, Will Addison, Stuart McCloskey, Jordi Murphy and John Cooney among others in what's becoming a long injury list for the Ulstermen.

Ulster make two changes from their bonus point win at Northampton last week. Eric O'Sullivan comes into the starting lineup at prop and Angus Curtis starts at inside centre.

Clermont got their first win of the European campaign as they edged out Sale Sharks 25-19 at home in the Stade Marcel Michelin. It's fair to say they aren't having the best of seasons. They sit seventh in the Top 14 and sit seventh in Pool A of the Champions Cup.


There's plenty of Irish links in this Clermont side in the form of JJ Hanrahan. The former Munster fly-half joined the French side last summer and has generally done well while facing stiff competition from French international Camille Lopez. Former Ulster and Leinster coach Jono Gibbes is also the Head Coach of Clermont.

Fritz Lee, Camille Lopez and Damian Penaud are all left on the bench for Clermont as Hanrahan and Tomas Lavinini both start.
