Ulster go top

Ulster kept their European hopes alive with a thumping five-try 31-10 win over Aironi, a result which puts Brian McLaughlin's squad top of Pool Four at least until Clermont and Leicester Tigers do battle on Sunday.

Tries from man of the match Stephen Ferris, Adam D'Arcy, Andrew Trimble, Paul Marshall and 19-year-old Paddy Jackson plus six points from the boot of Ian Humphreys saw Ulster on their way.

The win sets them up well to repeat the dose when they visit Aironi for the second part of the European double-header next Saturday, a game which Ulster again have to bid to take maximum points from.
