Ulster hold off dogged Scarlets

Stewart Moore’s intercept try increased Ulster’s advantage in the first half
Ulster (19) 26
Tries: Lyttle, S Moore, Reidy, Treadwell Cons: Cooney 2, Johnston
Scarlets (7) 24
Tries: Asquith, Conbeer, S Evans, P Price Con: O’Brien 2

Ulster came through an indisciplined display against a dogged Scarlets to preserve their winning record with a bonus-point victory in Belfast.

Rob Lyttle and Stewart Moore scored for the hosts either side of Paul Asquith’s try, before Sean Reidy’s score put Ulster in command at the break.

Tries from Ryan Conbeer and Steff Evans brought Scarlets to within two points, but Kieran Treadwell’s score gave Ulster enough breathing space to ensure the win despite Phil Price’s late try.

The visitors will rue four missed kicks that allowed Ulster to stay in front throughout, but deservedly take two bonus-points home with them following a thoroughly entertaining display.

Treadwell and wing Matt Faddes both spent 10 minutes in the sin-bin for Ulster, who lost centre Luke Marshall to an early knee injury.

Scarlets remain third in Conference B while Ulster will be delighted to have secured maximum points from what was easily their toughest game of the 2020-21 season so far.
