Pienaar on target in Ulster win

Ulster improved their chances of a home tie in the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup with a scrappy 9-8 victory over Castres at Stade Pierre-Antoine.

Although not at their best, they came from behind to win, courtesy of three Ruan Pienaar penalties and now await results on Sunday to see if they will have home advantage in the last eight.

Castres had led early on thanks to a well-worked try from Remi Lamerat but it was Mark Anscombe's side who took home the points.
