Ravens aim to boost Cup hopes

Published 13/01/2011

WITH Ulster hosting Biarritz at Ravenhill on Saturday afternoon the Ravens' British & Irish Cup match against Neath tomorrow night has been switched to Shaw’s Bridge.

To date in the B&I Cup the Ravens have played two matches, both away from home and with mixed fortunes.

They managed to defeat Swansea 32-12 at St Helen’s but then crashed to a 36-22 defeat at the hands of Bedford Blues at Goldington Road.

The Ravens were to have played Moseley in Belfast on December 17 but the big pre-Christmas freeze put paid to that.

Ulster are awaiting news from the B&I Cup organising committee with regard to the rescheduling of that match.

Ravens boss Gary Longwell is due to name his side today for the clash which kicks off at 7pm at Shaw’s Bridge tomorrow night.

Tickets (£12 for adults, £6 for children) are available from the Ulster Rugby ticket office, where you can call in person, or via the phone (028 9049 3222 Option 2).

Admission is by ticket only — money cannot be paid at the ground.

This applies to Ulster Rugby season ticket holders too, for while admission to Ravens’ matches is included as part of their entitlement package they are still required to pick up a free ticket from Ravenhill in advance of the game.

Fellow-Irish provinces Leinster A and Munster A are on B&I Cup duty this weekend, too.

Munster play tonight, with Nottingham providing the opposition at Meadow Lane (7:45).

Leinster’s turn will come at lunchtime on Sunday when they host Worcester Warriors at Donnybrook (1pm).
