In one of their worst performances of the season so far, Ulster were completely outplayed by a half strength Edinburgh side, losing 28-17 at BT Murrayfield Stadium.
They did themselves no favours, conceding two early tries to Viliame Mata and Damien Hoyland, and when Magnus Bradbury crossed just after the break the lead was unassailable.
There was a debut try for Aaron Cairns and Jacob Stockdale also crossed late on, but this was Ulster a long long way from their best, and they can't argue...
Rob Lyttle has burst onto the scene for Ulster this season and the winger admits he would love nothing more than to help his side head into the Guinness PRO12 break with a win after a patchy run of form.
Lyttle makes his second-ever Guinness PRO12 start for Ulster – having scored in last week’s defeat to Munster – is a new addition to the starting backline alongside centre Sam Windsor and fly-half Brett Herron.
Pete Browne and Clive Ross join the pack for the crucial clash while academy...
Ulster have secured the services of one of their star performers for another three years after flanker Sean Reidy signed a new contract extension until 2020.
The New Zealand-born back rower has kicked on from his first cap with Ireland over the summer and has started the season strongly, capped with an excellent performance against Munster last weekend where he made 25 tackles, the most by an individual in one game this season.
Reidy, who is Irish qualified through his grandmother, made his...
In a finish that was remarkably similar to last week's win over the Exeter Chiefs, Munster took victory from the Kingspan Stadium after a late Rory Scannell drop goal handed them a 14-15 win over Ulster.
Despite leading at half-time courtesy of a first try for Charles Piutau and a further effort by Rob Lyttle, the home side couldn't hold onto their advantage, and missed a chance to steal the win at the end when Paddy Jackson pushed a drop goal of his own wide.
Man of the Match Scannell added a...
Whoever decided interpros should be the same week as we're preparing for a Test against the All Blacks needs a stern talking to.
Still, we can only work with the hand we've been dealt and fortunately we have the returns of Wiehahn Herbst and Dan Tuohy to offset a portion of the international losses. It's not ideal that their returns from long term lay-offs are to be thrown straight in against one of the biggest packs in the Guinness PRO12, but given our injury situation it was more a...
Ulster have released an injury update ahead of their interprovincial clash with Munster on Friday night at the Kingspan Stadium (kick-off 7:05pm).
Darren Cave has returned ahead of schedule and is available for selection at the weekend, as is Robbie Diack who has missed the last few games as well.
Both Luke Marshall (knee) and Dan Tuohy (hip) received injuries in their respective matches at the weekend, but it is hoped that they will both be available for the game.
Stuart Olding (hip flexor)...
