Ulster hero Humphreys seals win

Ian Humphreys boosted Ulster's hopes of making the quarter-finals of the Heineken Cup with a late long-range penalty to earn his side a 9-6 win over Biarritz.

Humphreys' late match clincher from just inside his own half ensures that the Pool Four winner will be decided in next weekend's final round of games.

Biarritz's losing bonus point could yet prove crucial to who tops the group, though, and the French outfit look more likely to qualify should they beat Bath. But if Ulster win at Aironi they could be on target to get through as one of the two best runners-up in the competition.

Dimitri Yachvili was on target with two penalties for the visitors.
