Ulster will face Harlequins in the Challenge Cup last 16.

Unfamiliar competition, very familiar opponents.

Ulster's first foray into European rugby's second-tier tournament will bring about a fifth meeting with Harlequins in the past four seasons after the draw for the last-16 of the Challenge Cup was made in Switzerland yesterday.

The game, which will take place over the first weekend of April, sees two sides who started this season in the Champions Cup going head-to-head after the Covid-19 pandemic forced two changes to the established format in quick succession.
