Ulster continued their fine Heineken Cup form this season with a seven-try drubbing of Italian side Treviso, winning by a convincing scoreline of 48-0.
Tries from Paddy Jackson, Luke Marshall (2), John Afoa, Dan Tuohy, Sean Doyle and Andrew Trimble gave Ulster a comfortable victory against a Treviso side who will go home with a lot of questions to be answered.
It didn’t take long for Ulster to get their first try of the evening as a two-man overlap was exploited by Darren Cave who offloaded...
Pool Five is now ours to lose, I don’t think anyone will deny that.
With what must be considered one of our greatest ever Heineken Cup wins away to Montpellier in Round Two, there is now a bit of added expectation on our shoulders – we are now considered real contenders to win the competition outright (I question why we weren’t before) and with that pressure on our shoulders we enter into tomorrow’s match against Treviso with the chance to really consolidate our position at the top of...
Ulster ground out what was just a deserved victory in Parma, triumphing 19-11 in an exciting encounter over a spirited Zebre side who asked them plenty of questions for the whole game.
A superb backs try rounded off by Darren Cave backed up by fourteen points from Paddy Jackson was enough to see off the Italians’ surge which consisted of a try from debutant Guglielmo Palazzani and two penalties from centre Gonzalo Garcia.
Despite sitting eleventh in the table, Zebre were the side that seized...
That Christmas feeling is beginning to creep in again – but there’s no let up in the rugby action as Ulster are back in action this weekend!
I’m going to dub the next four weeks as the “Italian Job”, and Part One of our tale begins in the Stadio XXV Aprille in Parma this Saturday as we take on eleventh placed Zebre in another Pro12 clash. Last week’s bonus point win over Edinburgh was a massive improvement on our loss away to the Scarlets, and it has brought us right back into...
Ulster moved up to third in the Pro12, albeit temporarily, with a thoroughly convincing 41-17 victory over Edinburgh at Ravenhill last night.
With the new grandstand steelwork looming over the pitch, Ulster ran riot with five tries coming from Paul Marshall, stand-in captain Robbie Diack, James McKinney and two from Craig Gilroy.
Edinburgh scored three tries themselves through Cornell du Preez, Grayson Hart and Dougie Fife, however the Scottish side were unable to cope with a man-of-the-match...
It’s been three long weeks since we last saw Ulster on our TV screens, and I for one have been suffering from withdrawal symptoms. Thank goodness we’re back in action tomorrow night then – I’m not sure how many more weeks I could have survived without it!
Edinburgh will be the opponents this week as we look to get back to winning ways after such a disappointing defeat in Llanelli in our last match, when we left the Parc y Scarlets with nothing to show for our (minimal) efforts....
