Humphreys boots Ulster to victory

Ulster repeated last season's historic Heineken Cup 'double' over Bath with a 26-22 win coming courtesy of tries in each half from Adam D'Arcy and Nevin Spence and a superb kicking display by fly-half Ian Humphreys.

While Bath resign themselves to non-qualification for the second season in a row, the Ulstermen can now look forward to an epic encounter with Pool 4 leaders Biarritz on 15 January.

The match turned on a yellow card shown just after half-time to Springbok fly-half Butch James. It allowed Ulster, trailing by a point at half-time, to grab the initiative with Nevin's 56th-minute try. Man-of-the-match Humphreys slotted the touchline conversion and held Bath at bay with excellent place kicking while the home side could muster only a long-range try from Matt Banahan.
