Ulster fall just short in Glasgow
23 May 2015 12:12
Glasgow 16-14 Ulster
-
Ulster fell agonisingly short in their Guinness Pro12 semi-final with Glasgow as a 75th-minute try from DTH van der Merwe and a Finn Russell conversion edged the Scottish side to victory.
-
The Irish province had bullied Gregor Townsend's men throughout the early stages and took control midway through the opening period with Chris Henry's try.
-
But Glasgow came out fired up for the second half and kept themselves in touch before Scarlets-bound Van der Merwe levelled the scores on his final Scotstoun appearance five minutes from time.
-
The score sent the 10,000 sell-out crowd into ecstasy but there was still work to be done as Russell lined up the decisive conversion.
-
However, the Scotland fly-half did not flinch as he booted Warriors towards the Belfast final, where they will now face the the winner of Saturday's clash between Munster and Ospreys on 30 May.
