The game is live on eir Sport 1 and eir Sport 2  on Friday night. The game is kicking off at 7.35pm, with eir on, er, air, from 7pm.

What are each side's respective injury situations?

Munster reported no new injury problems from the ill-tempered 13-12 defeat in Castres, meaning that their injury list consists of James Cronin (leg) Rhys Marshall (hamstring), Jack O’Donoghue (knee), Dave O’Callaghan (foot), James Hart (knee), and Chris Farrell (thigh).

Darren Sweetnam has returned to training from the injury that forced him from Ireland's November win over Argentina, and is contention to be involved in Belfast on Friday.

Ulster, meanwhile, have been dealt the massive blow of losing Iain Henderson for the next three months as he opts for surgery on a thumb injury. Henderson may be back in time for Ireland's final two Six Nations games, as the second-row bids to clear up any issues ahead of the run-in to the season and, of course, the World Cup in Japan.

Elsewhere, Matthew Rea sustained a thumb fracture playing for Ballymena RFC on Saturday and had surgery which will rule him out of action for eight to 10 weeks.

Are either side in form? 

Ulster arrive on the back of hugely impressive back-to-back wins over Scarlets in the European Cup, while Munster were distinctly less impressive away to Castres in that narrow defeat last weekend.

League-wise, Ulster are third in Conference B, while Munster are seven points off Glasgow at the summit of Conference A.

So, a reminder on where to watch Ulster vs Munster - the game is live on eir Sport from 7pm on Friday night.
