Connacht climbed to second in Conference A with a relatively comfortable 21-12 Pro14 win over Ulster at the Sportsground on Friday.
Andy Friend’s Connacht are the only visiting team to have beaten Ulster at Kingspan Stadium this season and they completed a double over their Irish rivals after a strong start to both halves.

Ulster threatened to come back into contention when Angus Kernohan went over ahead of half-time, but the gap was stretched again two minutes after the restart.
Jordi Murphy went through off a driving maul on the next play to restore some respectability to the scoreline, but Ulster were unable to turn to get any closer.
