Ulster failed to improve upon their poor recent record in Dublin as a losing bonus point was all they took home from their interpro with Leinster at the RDS.

A first-half Paddy Jackson penalty was all they could muster and, while Leinster's increased creativity was met with determined defence from the visitors, Leo Cullen's side did at least manage to cross the whitewash on one occasion.

That crucial score came from Sean Cronin as half-time neared with neither side adding to their tallies after the turn.

The result in a third defeat in four games for Ulster as they fell out of the league's top six.
