Ulster Rugby have confirmed they will host the Barbarians in a special fixture at Kingspan Stadium on Thursday 1st June.
The match will give Ulster fans a last chance to see departing stars such as Roger Wilson and Ruan Pienaar in action, while the Barbarians are expected to bring a star-studded squad to Belfast.
The fixture will follow on from the England versus Barbarians game at Twickenham on Sunday 28th May.
Ulster Rugby Director of Rugby, Les Kiss, commented:
“We are delighted to be hosting such a high profile game at Kingspan Stadium. Not only will it give local rugby supporters a chance to see some world class rugby, but it will also be an opportunity for them to say goodbye to some of the players who have contributed so much to the Ulster cause.
“The Barbarians versus Fiji game last November was a special occasion but I have no doubt that this event will exceed it, given our direct involvement in the match. We look forward to welcoming the Barbarians for what is sure to be a competitive and hugely enjoyable fixture to finish the season off.”
