The second last-four tie takes place in Cape Town
Stormers v Ulster live stream: How to watch the URC semi-final
Who will complete next weekend’s United Rugby Championship final line-up – Stormers or Ulster? We’ll find out this afternoon as the two meet in the second semi-final in Cape Town (kick-off 2pm UK & Ireland time).
Ulster made it through to the last four with a convincing 36-17 victory over Munster and name an unchanged team for this semi-final, including Springboks No 8 Duane Vermeulen.
A 28-17 win over Edinburgh secured Stormers’ passage through to the semi-finals and the fact they finished second in the table at the end of the regular season means they get to host this fixture at DHL Stadium.
The two sides played at the same venue in late March, with Stormers 23-20 victors. Will it be just as tight today?
