Ulster close in on progress

Ulster pressed home their Heineken Cup ambitions with a 46-20 bonus-point victory over Aironi in Monza.

Brian McLaughlin's men scored six tries on their way to a well-merited win, which puts them in pole position at the top of Pool Four ahead of next month's crunch clashes at home against Leicester and away to Clermont Auvergne.

Andrew Trimble, Tom Court, Craig Gilroy and replacements Robbie Diack and Adam Macklin were all on the mark for the visitors, while a first-half penalty try added to Italian woes.
