The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
League leaders Ulster are home to ninth placed Neath Swansea Ospreys and will start long odd-on to retain their top position. They might even extend their lead because second placed Gwent Dragons are home to third placed Llanelli Scarlets, and that game should yield no more than four points for the winner.
Connacht travel to Scotland for their game with Edinburgh, a side who shipped 50 points at this venue a week ago (v Cardiff).
