    Munster's makeshift line-up upset the odds in a match that was supposed to be about how many tries Ulster could score by winning 24-21.


    The visitors simply torched the script and came back to snatch a dramatic win at Ravenhill which appears to have done fatal damage to Ulster's Magners League challenge.


    Ulster's intent had been to top the table outright overnight, ahead of Leinster's game with Connacht on Saturday, but their losing bonus point puts them on equal points with Michael Cheika's side and is bound to leave Ulster deeply wounded after losing control of a game they confidently led 21-3 at half-time.
    <DIV id=story_island></DIV>


    Instead of pushing on to secure the bonus point, Ulster's game and defensive shape fell apart as the going got fast and loose in the second half.


    A brave Munster effort, with Jerry Flannery, John O'Sullivan and skipper Alan Quinlan had immense games, seeing the visitors score three tries to come away with a fully deserved win ahead of their Heineken Cup quarter-final at Llanelli next week.


    Ulster ignored a kickable penalty attempt, which could have drawn the game in the dying minutes, to go for a try but Munster's excellent defence held firm.


    The momentum never returned to the home side's game and Ulster failed to score any points from the 24th minute onwards.


    The winning score came courtesy of former rugby league star and new signing Brian Carney who marked his debut by rubbing plentiful salt into what had become a shambolic Ulster performance.
    Ulster had made their intentions clear from early on with tries being top of their agenda.


    Tommy Bowe came close to scoring in the seventh minute and only a great covering tackle from Christian Cullen prevented the home side from getting out of the traps early.


    But Ulster were not to be denied and a minute after Cullen's heroics, Andrew Trimble found Paul Steinmetz on a cutback run off the left wing and the Kiwi burst through to score under the posts and give David Humphreys a straightforward two-pointer.


    The visitors' cause was further damaged by the sinbinning of prop Tony Buckley after a fracas with Justin Harrison from the restart and Ulster used the 10 minutes well by producing a score from Roger Wilson, again converted off the upright by Humphreys, to give them a 14-0 lead after 20 minutes.


    With Munster restored to their full complement, Eoghan Hickey managed their first points from a penalty but the home side immediately struck b

        Now, now, epaddy, if this was GAA they'd be writing ballads about it [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]


        I wonder if our resident Gaels, CCHA and Chief could compose something to mark the occasion ? [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]

              There was an academy from Munster,
              wholost thefirst half up inUlster,
              but let's not be absurd,
              a Quinlan chip for the third,
              leaves Ravenhilldown in the dumps, sir


              A sublime chip from Quinnie to Carney
              Brings joy to the travelling Red Army,
              Halstead in for the first,
              JOS finished with a burst,
              Write us off? They must've been barmy.
