Ulster lose out 27-17 to Glasgow following Guinness PRO12 clash

Ulster's rugby giants surrendered a last-quarter lead to lose 27-17 against Glasgow Warriors at Scotstoun on Friday night.

On the ground where they lost last season's Pro12 semi-final, Les Kiss's men had led 17-9 early in the second-half thanks to tries from Iain Henderson and Stuart McCloskey but the hosts came roaring back.

Scores from Stuart Hogg and former Ulster player Tommy Seymour turned the game and the former's last-kick-of-the-game penalty denied the visitors even a losing bonus point.

Ulster fall to fifth in the table after Munster's victory over Zebre, while Glasgow are now level on points with a game in hand.

With league leaders Connacht to visit Kingspan Stadium next week, the province's play-off hopes are looking under serious threat.
