Stunning Ulster victory over Newport Gwent Dragons

By Jonathan Bradley

Ulster kicked off their season in perfect fashion with a bonus-point win over Newport Gwent Dragons at Kingspan Stadium.

After the revelation that his Ulster career would end after this season, Ruan Pienaar was named man-of-the match showing after scoring one of his side's five tries and kicking two conversions.

Rob Lyttle bagged a brace on debut while Jacob Stockdale and captain Rob Herring also scored.

Ulster will now travel to Treviso next Saturday looking to generate some early season momentum with another win.
