Leicester will be up against Ulster this Friday at Ravenhill as both teams fight it out for a place in the last eight. Both teams, former champions of the tournament have a do or die match in front of them as they look to book a place in the quarter finals.

Only three points separate Leicester, Ulster and Clermont in the fourth pool and hence this will be a very decisive match between the former champions.

Ian Humphreys and Pedrie Wannenburg of Ulster have been declared fit for the encounter and this news will lift up the spirits of the team and the fans alike. Humphreys had picked up his hamstring injury and Pedrie Wannenburg his ankle injury in their team’s encounter with Edinburh. But now since both the players look fit to make a return, the only change that will be taking place in their line up will be that of Paddy Wallace replacing Ian Whitten who has been benched.
Nigel Brady will also be making his hundredth appearance for this club as he replaces Andi Kyriacou.

On the other hand the director of rugby of Leicester will only be making only two changes while preparing to face their strong opponents. Both these changes are going to be made up front as Martin Castroqiovanni and Marcos Ayerza have been the choice of the director.

According to Cockerill, they have a strong team as he has been rotating the squad over the past few weeks in order to avoid player fatigue and weariness. He says that his players are fresh and ready to take on the opponents. He also believes that his players have been playing well over the past few games and look in good shape and form. He acknowledges the fact that Ulster are a very good and tough side and he agrees that it is a must win match for both the sides and hence the competition will be tough.

Let’s see if it is Leicester or Ulster that wins this crucial tie and advances to the quarterfinals.
