It doesn’t get any easier for Rassie Erasmus’ side the following round when Leicester come to town. Ulster take on Harlequins live on BT on the Sunday afternoon of that weekend. Leinster play Exeter in the final instalment of Game Week Three.

Round Four is then the opposite fixtures from the previous week.

The details of the final two weeks will be announced in the coming months. Both of those fixtures are played after Christmas.
