Ulster to face Leinster in Ravenhill friendly on 23 August

Robbie Diack and Tom Court tackle Jonathan Sexton in the Pro12 final in May

Ulster's first match at the new-look Ravenhill will be a friendly against Irish interprovincial rivals Leinster on 23 August.

The match, a repeat of last season's Pro12 final, will see two new stands at the ground opening to spectators for this first time.

The new stands at the Aquinas and Memorial ends will see Ravenhill's capacity increasing to 13,500.

The completion of the project next year will lead to a capacity of over 18,000.
