Ulster boosted by Aironi triumph

Ulster bolstered their hopes for a PRO12 League play-off place by notching up a seventh win from their last eight outings with a 45-7 victory over Aironi that gives them the perfect boost ahead of their Heineken Cup quarter-final with Munster.

However, the six-try win may have come at a cost as star flanker Stephen Ferris was helped off with an ankle injury just after the half-hour mark and he could be a doubt for the Munster clash.

Paddy Wallace, Rory Best, Darren Cave, Tom Court, and Pedrie Wannenburg crossed over for the home side with Ruan Pienaar and Ian Humphreys adding the extras. While Tito Tebaldi scored a try for Aironi in the first half as Naas Oliver kicked the conversion.
