Ulster dispatch hapless Dragons

RaboDirect Pro12 pacesetters Ulster kept up their charge by overpowering Newport Gwent Dragons 46-19 at Rodney Parade.

The Irish province made it eight wins from eight this season to pile the misery on the struggling Dragons, who still have just Zebre beneath them in the table.

The visitors ran in six tries and South African ace Ruan Pienaar, who scored one of them, added 18 points with the boot for a comprehensive win.

Tom Court, Nick Williams, Darren Cave, Andrew Trimble and Jared Payne also went over for Ulster with Anitelea Tuilagi claiming the solitary try for the Dragons and Tom Prydie kicking the rest of their points.
