After Leinster vs Munster was cancelled last weekend due to players in the Leinster camp testing positive for Covid-19, we have a clean slate of Inter-pro derbies to look forward to this weekend.
Both games are on Saturday evening, and first up is Ulster vs Munster from the Kingspan Stadium in Belfast.
Kick off is at 5.15pm, with coverage starting at 4.45pm on Eir Sport 1. Deferred coverage of the game will be available to watch on TG4 at 8pm.

Eir Sport 1 will be showing live coverage of the game, with the build-up starting at 7.15 pm. TG4 will also be showing deferred coverage of the match from 8pm.
Johnny Sexton is back in the Leinster side at 10 and Luke McGrath captains the side from scrum-half. Elsewhere, Ryan Baird, Scott Penny and Dan Leavy start in the back row.
Congratulations to Academy duo Max O'Reilly and Andrew Smith who will both make their senior debuts from the start tomorrow against Connacht! 🔵🙌#LeinsterRugby #FromTheGroundUp pic.twitter.com/e0GguYrMxT
