New coach Matt Williams takes charge of Ulster for the first time for the clash of the bottom two in Pool 2 at Ravenhill.

Ulster produced a much better showing against the Ospreys in Round Four last month but the 1999 champions have an unpleasant record of four defeats from four matches. 

Bourgoin will be searching for a double after beating the Irishmen 24-17 at home in November.

But Bourgoin haven’t won away from home in the competition in 16 matches since winning against Sale Sharks in the 2002/03 season.
