The back-to-back will take place at the start of the September, when fans will be getting their appetites whetted for not just the start of the league season but also, of course, the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Ulster will host the first of the head-to-head games at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday, September 7 at 1.30pm with a return fixture scheduled for Scotstoun a week later on Saturday, September 14 at 2.30pm.

The games could give Ulster fans a first chance to cast their eye over new signing such as Matt Faddes, Sam Carter, Gareth Milasinovich and Bill Johnston, although the other new recruit Jack McGrath will be hoping to be with Joe Schmidt's Ireland squad.

There could also be promising Academy players getting a taste of the action as last year Michael Lowry, Eric O’Sullivan, Angus Kernohan and James Hume all played a part in pre-season before breaking into the squad during the campaign.

This year, the likes of Marcus Rea and Stewart Moore could be looking to make the step up.
