Alan Solomons has named an unchanged line-up from that originally selected last week to play against Leinster.
The vist of the Tigers represents a big challenge for Ulster who, as Coach Alan Solomons said, "will need to start the match the same way they finished against Leinster last week."
Solomons attributed last Friday night's defeat against Leinster to rustiness after a 5 day Christmas break and also to the fact that the team were unable to train properly due to frozen pitches. However, he took heart from the fact that on two occassions Ulster were able to put themselves right back into the game after looking as though they were down and out.
Captain Andy Ward commented, "We are at our best when we are pushing hard, Sunday will be a tough encounter but we're well prepared and we're looking forward to having a team of Leicester's calibre visit Ravenhill."
Ulster take on the Tigers this Sunday at Ravenhill, kick-off is 1pm. Gates open at 12 noon and all supporters must enter the ground through the Ravenhill Park entrance as the Mount Merrion gate will be closed.
