Ulster retook third place in PRO14's conference B with a 28-15, bonus-point win over Dragons at Rodney Parade.

A game played in poor conditions, it was a forward dominated contest where Eric O'Sullivan was named man of the match and Jordi Murphy, Marty Moore and Alan O'Connor got over for tries.

John Cooney was the only back to cross the whitewash, while Ulster got the job done despite being shown three yellow cards and spending almost ten minutes of the game with 13 men.

The five-pointer has Dan McFarland's men just a point behind second-place Benetton ahead of a two-week break in league action.
