Ulster’s Nathan Doak kicks the last score of the game

So, all good so far. A third straight win with accompanying bonus point and Ulster now sit top of the table with only Munster, who play today able to nudge them aside.

And the fact that this was another of those performances with, arguably, more scuff than polish about it seems of little enough consequence.

Ulster are getting the job done and, so far, have been able to cope with their far too lengthy injury list. However, this situation now looks as if it has been very worryingly added to by prop Andy Warwick’s early departure, on Friday night, meaning that Dan McFarland has a pressing issue regarding fit loose-heads, never mind the other side of the scrum with Marty Moore having sat this one out.
