It's just over 24 hours until Ulster host South African side The Cheetahs in the brand new Pro14 league.

It comes after a pre-season in which they lost to both Wasps and Northampton Saints.

Several new players have joined the fold, including Schalk van der Merwe, Jean Deysel & John Cooney.

The summer has been a productive one for Jacob Stockdale and Kieran Treadwell- both made their international debuts for Ireland in the summer tour to USA and Japan.

They chatted to Simon Hunter at QHQ, looking ahead to the historic Cheetahs showdown, and talked about their special summers, new coaching staff at Kingspan and the new squad!

Tomorrow's opponents have made the journey from Bloemfontein; known for its high altitude.

They've been getting acclimatized to the conditions in Northern Ireland, as they prepare for the competition to get underway.

Kick-off at Kingspan Stadium is at 7:35pm.
