PRO14 Friday Preview

Friday's round 4 action in the PRO14 sees four teams in action with the Cheetahs hosting Ulster while the Cardiff go in search of their first win of the season against Munster.


Cheetahs v Ulster

The Cheetahs host two games on Friday with the Cheetahs' Currie Cup side facing the Pumas, before the PRO14 side host their second home game of the season against Ulster.

They will be hunting their first victory of the season against the Irishmen, who will be looking to stretch their winning run in the competition to four matches and maintain their unbeaten status against South African sides.

The teams have only met once before in Belfast, in the Cheetah’s very first PRO14 match where Ulster claimed a convincing 42-19 victory.
