LEINSTER Rugby have confirmed the details for the pre-season friendly against Ulster Rugby on Saturday August 30.

Tallaght Stadium will host the game at 4pm ,in what is a reverse of last season's pre-season fixture which Ulster won 21-19 in Ravenhill.

This is not the first time that a pre-season friendly has been hosted at the Tallaght Stadium, with Gloucester visiting in advance of the 2012/2013 season in a 33-22 win for the home side.

Most recently, the stadium hosted the Leinster Schools Junior Cup Final between Blackrock College and Belvedere College, back in March of this year.

Tickets for the Ulster game will go on sale on Monday, July 7 from www.leinsterrugby.ie and from usual outlets.

The second game in Leinster's pre-season schedule is against Northampton Saints away in Franklin's Gardens a week earlier on August 23.
