ULSTER 24-9 SCARLETS 6.12.2014

On Saturday night, I ventured to Raven Kingspan Stadium for my annual European game. Given Ulster’s start to the campaign, there might not be any knockout games to try and scramble to get a ticket for come April.

Ulster started slowly and were 3-0 down through an early penalty for Scarlets, before missing two of their own. The crowd were nervous.

For a change from recent games, I was at the side of the pitch, at the terracing at Mount Merrion. A far more enjoyable experience than being behind the goal, as you don’t get squashed in. I still don’t understand why Rugby fans enjoy walking up and down and back and forth during the game. Bloody nuisance when you’re trying to watch the game and people are walking in your road.

And don’t even start me on the people who walk really slowly and block your path because they don’t want to spill their beer, which is in a robust carrier with a lid on it.

Ulster soon regains their composure and two quick converted tries saw them open up a 14-6 lead. It could have been more, such was the dominance.

A penalty early in the second-half for Scarlets got them back into it, only a try away, but a try from Tommy Bowe made it 19-9.

Ulster search for that try that would give them a bonus point, which they got, and everybody went home happy.

Suddenly, there’s still a bit of life in this European campaign for Ulster.
