Ulster come undone in Glasgow
18 Apr 2014 22:10
Ulster fell to a bruising 27-9 RaboDirect PRO12 loss to Glasgow in Scotstoun, a result that leaves them just a point above the Scottish side and which may put their hunt for a home semi-final spot in danger.
-
The visitors had moved into a 9-3 lead at one point in the first half thanks for the boot of Paddy Jackson, who was left to rue two missed kicks when Sean Maitland burst through the Ulster defence to touch down and add five points to Finn Russell's opening penalty.
-
Ulster appeared to have taken hold of the game with three penalties by Paddy Jackson in the middle of the first half but he had an important miss in the 31st minute and Glasgow closed the half with a fine try from Sean Maitland.
-
The conversion by Finn Russell added to his earlier penalty allowing Glasgow to go in leading 10-9 and they dominated the second half, scoring tries through Tommy Seymour and man of the match Mark Bennett, with Russell converting both and adding a penalty.
-
Glasgow can now look forward to an exciting end to the regular season as they seek a top-two finish, with a previously-postponed home game against Edinburgh next Saturday followed by Treviso away and Zebre back at Scotstoun.
