Record-breaking Ulster demolish sorry Zebre
Ulster set a new club record for points scored in a Pro12 fixture, running in 10 tries in their 68-21 thrashing of Zebre on Saturday.
Victory moves Ulster back into the top four, four points clear of fifth-placed Scarlets with five rounds of the regular season remaining.
After Luke Marshall’s early opener for the hosts at Kingspan Stadium, Zebre briefly levelled through Andre De Marchi, but that was as good as it got for the bottom club, who have just one win to their name this season.
Marshall soon went in for a second and Ruan Pienaar, Charles Piutau and Jacob Stockdale all crossed before half-time.
Craig Gilroy, Piutau, John Andrew, Stuart Olding and Paul Marshall touched down in the second period as Zebre’s defence was repeatedly carved open.
