Ulster ace Ethan McIlroy acrobatically bags a try against Northampton Saints back in December

Come Sunday evening, three of Ulster’s last five European games will have pitted them against Northampton Saints.

While such quirks of the draw are nothing new to the province – they played Toulouse twice in two different seasons just three months apart in the autumn and winter of 2021, while they’ve met Harlequins no fewer than five times in the past five campaigns — there are plenty of sides in their own league that they see with far less frequency than the English giants.
