It has been 10 years since Ulster faced international opposition in Belfast. Portugal were the last nation to play - back in 2008 in the old Ravenhill.

On Friday, November 9, South American side Uruguay will visit Belfast as part of a short tour as they continue their preparations for next year’s Rugby World Cup in Japan.

A Tier Two nation in World Rugby, Uruguay are currently ranked 18th in the world.


They have had to play bridesmaid to Argentina over the years in the South American Championship - they won the bi-annual tournament back in 1981 - but they have been regular qualifiers for the World Cup.


Their appearance in Japan - just less than a year from now - will be the fourth finals they have contested.

Los Teros - as the Uruguayans are known - are regarded as one of the stronger fringe nations in world rugby and will present a good challenge for the Ulster side, who will include several of their exciting young players who have hit the headlines recently, including Michael Lowry, Robert Baloucoune and James Hume.
