Busby scores on debut as Ulster fail to shine in Italy

By Jonathan Bradley

Ulster academy star David Busby dived over for a fantastic debut senior try in Parma yesterday as Les Kiss' men recorded their third consecutive bonus point win.

The visitors ran in six tries, including yet another score for the impressive Jacob Stockdale. Ulster are now just five points behind fourth placed Scarlets in the League with a game in hand.

But, even with the 40-17 win, and a return to action for long-term injury victim Jared Payne, Ulster will still have mixed emotions after a performance that was a step back from their last outing against Glasgow and saw usual whipping boys Zebre trail by only four points at half-time.

It is, however, the first time the province have won three games in a row since the start of the season. Ulster meet Treviso on Friday.
