It was a case of the proverbial game of two halves at Welford Road as the Leicester Tigers and Ulster played out a pulsating opening match of the Rugby Champions’ Cup, the match ending in a 25-18 home win.

First half tries from Owen Williams, Graham Kitchener and Freddie Burns sent Leicester on their way to the victory, however they were made to work for it in the second half as Ulster fought back bravely.

Tommy Bowe and Franco van der Merwe responded for the Ulstermen who will take a losing...

It doesn’t seem like nine months since we were revelling in our 22-19 win at Welford Road in the Heineken Cup, does it?

Exactly nine months ago tomorrow I stood on the Holland & Barrett terrace surrounded by friends in white cheering on the Ulstermen to one of our more famous away victories on the European stage, a memory I will never forget. That night was a real arm wrestle, one which required the subtle kicking game of Ruan Pienaar to unlock and eventually swing in our favour. This...

Match Report: Ulster Rugby 29-9 Glasgow Warriors

As far as confidence boosters go, Ulster will be thrilled with this result ahead of next week’s trip to Leicester as they put away Pro12 leaders the Glasgow Warriors comfortably, winning 29-9 at the Kingspan Stadium.

Ian Humphreys and Finn Russell traded penalties in the first half, but in the second half tries from wingers Craig Gilroy and Tommy Bowe made the game secure for the hosts.

The Warriors, who made twelve changes to last week’s team, were surprisingly off colour, and a first...

Things don’t stay secret for very long around here do they?

As we’ve known for the best part of three months, Neil Doak will be Mark Anscombe’s long-term successor as head coach at the Kingspan Stadium, while Les Kiss will return from the World Cup next summer as Ulster’s new Director of Rugby. So far the partnership hasn’t worked too badly, there seems to be a better work rate in training, and certainly the players appear to be a lot happier with the current set-up than what was...

Match Report: Ulster Rugby 30-0 Edinburgh Rugby

Ulster got back to winning ways in the Guinness Pro12 with a 30-0 victory over Edinburgh at the Kingspan Stadium, gaining a late bonus point through a last-minute Andrew Trimble try.

It was a late flourish from the Ulstermen, who again were not at their best, with three tries in the last twenty minutes from Nick Williams, Rory Best and Andrew Trimble securing the extra point following Trimble’s first half effort.

By contrast, the Scottish visitors, who offered surprisingly little in the way...

As much as I want to forget the horrors of last Saturday, I feel it must be mentioned, at least in despatches.

That we left with a point from Parma is a miracle in itself. The manner with which we went about our game was abysmal, whether we had been reduced to fourteen men or not, and I don’t think anybody would have argued had we left Italy with nothing to show for our horrendously sub-standard efforts. On the flipside, fair play to Zebre – their first win over an Irish province, one...
