Ulster will host Connacht at Kingspan Stadium in an inter-provincial Pro 14 clash on Friday evening - if you're not heading along to the game, read on to find out the tv details on where to watch Ulster vs Connacht.

Where to watch Ulster vs Connacht?

The game is live on eir Sport 1 from 7pm on Friday night. Kick-off is at 7.35pm.

Here is the Connacht team:

Tiernan O’Halloran; Niyi Adeolokun, Tom Farrell, Bundee Aki, Matt Healy; Jack Carty, Kieran Marmion; Denis Buckley, Tom McCartney, Finlay Bealham; Ultan Dillane, Quinn Roux; Sean O’Brien, Jarrad Butler (C), Paul Boyle
