John Cooney scored his third try in as many games as Ulster racked up a convincing 29-5 win over the Scarlets at a chilly Kingspan Stadium last night.

The scrum-half scored nine points as Dan McFarland's men made it three wins in a row, in all competitions, ahead of returning to European action next weekend when they host Harlequins.

Centre Matt Faddes crossed for two tries, one at the start and the other right at the end of this convincing win which brought Ulster their third try bonus win of the PRO14 campaign.

Mattie Rea and Robert Baloucoune scored Ulster's other tries and Ulster had their try bonus in the bag before half an hour had even been played. Faddes crossed for try number five in the 78th minute of the game after what came close to a scoreless second half.
