The United Rugby Championship (URC) season is underway once again.
The league has grown since its inception as the Celtic League back in 2001, with games now taking place across Northern and Southern hemispheres. With the addition of the extra South African teams the URC looks to become a global rugby tournament and to have grown in strength after Stormers victory last year.
The Irish provinces will be looking to improve on last years showing, and claim the championship for the first time since Leinster's success in the 2020/2021 season.
