Ulster produced a scintillating 38-8 try bonus point win over the Newport-Gwent Dragons to maintain the pressure on Leinster and Munster at the top of the Pro12.
The hosts were ruthless and dominated all aspects of the game in comparison to their opponents who looked a shadow of the team that downed the Glasgow Warriors only five days earlier.
The home fans would have been delighted to see winger Tommy Bowe return from his four-month absence and bag two tries in his forty-minute stint as...
Okay, I’ve seen better performances from AIL teams than I did from Ulster last Sunday.
Quite aptly, Baggy was frequently posting a picture of Nigel Wray on the board in the build-up to the game. We played very similarly to that picture, and we were extremely lucky to come away with the four points from the Stadio di Monigo. To put it simply: we were extremely poor, and if we have any real aspirations of winning the league then we need to be putting these teams away a lot easier than we do.
Ulster moved back into the top four of the Pro12 with a thoroughly unconvincing 14-12 win in Treviso on Sunday.

Even though the Ulstermen left the Stadio di Monigo with the win, the performance was far less than pleasing for Ulster coach Mark Anscombe and he will be left with a lot of questions to answer ahead of next week's clash with the...
So last week was a bit of a damp squib wasn’t it?
Admittedly, Leighton Hodges probably got the decision to postpone the game right as the pitch did look like a swimming pool. The problem is what will it do to our momentum? It’s no understatement in saying we are probably one of the form teams in Europe right now with only two defeats in our last seventeen matches, and it also wouldn’t be an understatement in saying that if we want to win a trophy at the end of the season then we...
Ulster announced today that they have signed UC Brumbies’ loosehead prop Ruaidhri Murphy on a two-year deal starting at the beginning of next season.
The 26-year old Dublin-born prop will join up with Ulster in August after the Super Rugby season has finished and will compete with Callum Black for the starting position at loosehead.
Murphy has represented Ireland at under-19 and under-20 level, and was part of the Grand Slam winning under-20s squad in 2007.
Murphy started his career in the...
