Ravenhill may host Ireland match

Ravenhill could host an Ireland international
Ravenhill may host a full Ireland international for the first time in 50 years prior to next year's World Cup.

The home of Ulster rugby is in the running to stage a World Cup warm-up game, with Italy expected to be the likely opposition in August 2007.

A spokesman for the IRFU said other venues, including Thomond Park, were also being considered for the match and a decision was likely within weeks.

The last Ireland match at Ravenhill was against Scotland in the 1953-54 season.
