Pace-setters Ulster romp to win

Ulster stayed top of the RaboDirect PRO12 table after seeing off Connacht 25-0 to comfortably make it five wins from five games.

Ulster's win was forged off a dominant scrum and a penalty try along with another Nick Williams score came off the set-piece in the first half, before substitute Luke Marshall got over in the closing minutes.

Fly-half Paddy Jackson kicked 10 points and converted all four of his kicks at goal while Connacht, though they tried to replicate last week's stunning win over Leinster, just could not live with Ulster's power up front.

The game was Ulster's first at home since the farming tragedy which claimed the life of centre Nevin Spence, which was marked with a minute's silence before kick-off.
