Click here to Watch Leicester Tigers v Ulster Live Saturday 18th January 18:00 GMT
The match of the weekend is scheduled for Welford Road in Leicester on Saturday Evening, as Pool 5 in this season's Heineken Cup, comes to what promises to be a thrilling climax, with Pool leaders Ulster visiting second placed Leicester Tigers.
Ulster who seized control of the group from the outset, with a victory over the Tigers at Ravenhill, Belfast in round one of the Pool stage matches, lead their hosts by two points, and know that as long as they avoid defeat, they will qualify as group winners for the knockout stages, and a favorable home draw.
However, the Leicester Tigers have held on to the Ulstermen's shirt tails since their loss in Belfast, and victory by any margin on Saturday, will see them leapfrog to the top of the Pool, giving them the edge in the quarter final draw.
The runners up in this Pool are already guaranteed a quarter final slots, whichever of these sides in happens to be come the final whistle at Welford Road. However, that will bring an away tie with one of the top two seeds, not the most thrilling of prospects for the side involved.
With top referee, Nigel Owens, in charge of the game, the capacity crowd looks like they are in for a tremendous treat.
