Game previews, plus expert insights and exclusive commentary from the Belfast Telegraph sports team.

The Ulster captain confirmed on Thursday that he will be retiring from both international and provincial rugby.

Fans had been hoping that the 36-year-old could stay on to star for Ulster after this year's World Cup but it's not to be as Ireland's tournament in Japan will mark the end of a long, successful career.

We've also got a game against Leinster to preview and club play-offs to look at but mostly, it's all about Rory Best.

To discuss the main man, Gareth Hanna is once again joined by rugby reporters Jonathan Bradley and Adam McKendry.
