Morgan: Inter-pro holders Ulster on revenge mission

By Staff Reporter

Ulster, the current Junior Inter-provincial champions, travel to Clonakilty to face Munster knowing their second game of this season’s competition could decide who goes on to clinch the trophy.

It will be a most difficult task as Munster have already been to Leinster and scored six tries in a 43-20 victory. Ulster also gained a winning bonus point in their game against Connacht, making this afternoon a mouth-watering clash.

Coach Jason Morgan knows his team are in for a battle. He said: “Considering the scoreline against Leinster, it looks as though Munster want to play rugby so it will be tough but we must win. Two years ago they scraped though 10-9 so we are out for revenge.”

Ulster make a number of changes from last week. Curtis Stewart, who played such a big part in Bangor’s return to the AIL, will be missing after suffering a hamstring injury. His place at No.8 goes to Coleraine’s Brian Hughes while Davy Bradford, who came off the bench to score twice against Connacht, starts at No.7.

Clogher Valley’s Kyle Cobain also comes in at hooker, while Andrew Pollock replaces Philip Cartmill on the wing and Ards’ Scott Young is called in.
