Ulster have seen their two postponed United Rugby Championship inter-provincial ties against Connacht and Leinster rescheduled during the Six Nations.

Dan McFarland’s side will welcome Connacht to Kingspan Stadium in two weeks’ time on February 4, with a rather late kick-off time of 8:15pm, with Leinster visiting Belfast on March 12 at 7:35pm.

The scheduling of the latter game is particularly interesting as it is on the same day as the Six Nations clash between England and Ireland at Twickenham, which kicks off at 4:45pm.

Ulster currently sit third in the URC table, eight points behind leaders Edinburgh and three points adrift of Leinster ahead of their rearranged fixture.

Both games will be shown on Premier Sports, while the Connacht clash will also be broadcast live on BBC Sport Northern Ireland.

Round 8, Friday February 4

Ulster vs Connacht, Kingspan Stadium, 8:15pm

Round 9, Saturday March 12

Ulster vs Leinster, Kingspan Stadium, 7:35pm
