Saracens v Ulster LIVE stream of the pre-season clash

By Robert Hynes

Ulster face Saracens in a pre-season clash in London on Thursday evening as they continue their preparations for the new campaign.

The match takes place at the Honourable Artillery Company Grounds, which are located in the centre of the English capital.

Ulster are boosted by the return of some of their international players after their involvement in Ireland’s Summer Series for the clash.

Michael Lowry comes in to start at full-back, along with Robert Baloucoune on the right wing. Joining them is Craig Gilroy on the left wing.

James Hume has been selected in midfield alongside Stewart Moore. Billy Burns and John Cooney return in the starting half-back positions.

Two of last week’s try-scorers, Andrew Warwick and Brad Roberts have been given the nod at loosehead prop and hooker respectively. Marty Moore will join them in the front row at tighthead.

Alan O’Connor will captain the side from the second row, and will partner Mick Kearney. Greg Jones switches to blindside flanker, and Sean Reidy comes in to start at openside. Nick Timoney returns to start at Number Eight.

John Andrew, Callum Reid, Tom O’Toole, Sam Carter, Matty Rea, Ross Kane, Marcus Rea, David McCann and Harry Sheridan provide the forward reinforcements on the bench. David Shanahan, Ethan McIlroy, Ben Moxham, Ian Madigan, Angus Curtis and Ben Carson will offer back line cover.

The match gets under way at 5pm and you can watch it live on the video at the top of this article.
