Edinburgh too strong for Ulster

Edinburgh's interim coaching duo of Steve Scott and Duncan Hodge made a winning start to their tenure when the Scots edged out Ulster 14-8 at Murrayfield to secure only their fifth RaboDirect PRO12 success of the campaign.

A try by Stuart McInally plus three penalties by Piers Francis saw the Scots home against an Ulster side for whom Andrew Trimble bagged a try and Paddy Jackson landed a penalty.

However, it was Jackson's lack of accuracy with the boot that proved to be the difference between the sides as he failed with three simple penalties early in the second half.
