    And Ulster have conceded the free-kick in a defending scrum on the Treviso 5m. Less than 5 minutes left - if it stays as is, Treviso will entirely deserve the win.
    Tis but a scratch.

      Ferris has given MOTM to Tavuyara - says it all about the Ulster performance.

        Pretty much last-chance saloon for Ulster now - they've a lineout in the Treviso half but have messed it up. That should be the game.

          Ferris agrees with me that Treviso deserve the victory. 88 seconds left, Treviso scrum just inside their own half ...

            Ulster penalty on halfway as the clock goes red ...

              Lineout is about 8m out ... maulage, oh they're over for the try!
              NOPE - it's a penalty try, so 7 points and it ends in a draw. Harsh on Treviso tbh.

                Every single Ulster player should be buying Nigel Owens a pint tonight!

                    Agreed, massive leap of faith by Nigel
                    "There are a lot of points that we’ve left behind and this is with a young group. That probably tells you what they’re capable of and that they’re a very good side.

                    Probably next year or the year after next they will take some stopping"

                        Just managed to see the first threequarters of the game. Benetton looked the better team and played some good rugby using their big powerful backs. Against that, Ulster were missing a lot of their first XV squad, and their strength in depth is rather poor, so that is quite a good result for them on the night. Benetton are no longer the whipping boys of the Pro 12 , have had a string of good results, and are developing some very good young players.

                        A couple of points :
                        .. Burns is inothing special at 10 and has had plenty of games to state his case. Either Lowry or McPhillips deserves a run of games now. Lowry probably has more of the X factor.
                        .. Too much of the Ulster tackling was left to the two smallest men on the pitch - Shanahan and Lowry. They stepped up manfully and did well, but where were their teammates, especially in looking after SH Shanahan?
                        Erse end of nowhere

                          Edinburgh has confirmed that assistant forwards coach Roddy Grant will join Ulster in the summer for a similar role

                            There's a programme on BBC1 NI about Rory Best tonight at 22.40, if anyone's interested.

                              Interesting that he said he might continue playing with Ulster after the RWC, even though he'll be finishing with Ireland.
