Trimble eyes big finish for Ulster

Andrew Trimble was delighted to get back on the score sheet for Ulster on Saturday night.

The Ireland winger was omitted from the Six Nations squad but showed he hasn’t lost his try -scoring instinct, going over from the 10-metre line Ulster’s win.

It was only Trimble’s third touchdown of the season but he is hoping he can have a big finish to the campaign.

“Personally I’m absolutely delighted, I want to get back scoring tries, making breaks and causing defences trouble,” said Trimble.

“We were able to get into our patterns and break them down a lot in the first half, we we’re quite clinical and were able to capitalise on their defensive mistakes.”

“We broke them down and got the points and that is something that we haven’t always done in the past.”

Ulster’s victory stopped a run of three consecutive wins in the fixture by Glasgow and was also the first time they have stopped the opposition scoring in a competitive match since beating Treviso 27-0 in 0ctober 2005.

“It was difficult for them to break us down in the second half, we were comfortable in the first half and we took a lot of heart from the last 10 minutes when they threw the kitchen sink at us,” added Trimble.

“We were struggling and starting to tire but we kept our line intact and that was very important for us and gave us a physiological boost.”

“We really should have killed the game off but Glasgow are the sort of side that will keep coming back.”
