Warburton hobbled off injured prior to half-time in Friday’s clash, though early reports suggest the issue is unlikely to keep him out of action for too long.
However, the Blues were not on top for long as referee Ian Davies awarded Ulster a penalty try when a driving maul was hauled down as it headed for the line.
Two tries in quick succession from Reynold Lee-Lo put Cardiff back in charge early in the second half, only for Luke Marshall’s try, converted by Jackson, to haul Ulster level 10 minutes from time.
There was no deciding score as Danny Wilson’s side held firm for a valuable share of the spoils, potentially loosening Ulster’s grip on their top-four spot.

McKeon’s score represented five of Connacht’s 16 unanswered first-half points, and, although struggling Edinburgh rallied after the interval at Myreside, it was the visitors who claimed the points.
