Ulster claim Edinburgh victory

Sun, 25 Apr 19:05:03 2010

Ulster got their first Magners League win of the season over a Scottish side as they defeated Edinburgh 37-25 and in the process took five points to make sure that they will stay ahead of Connacht and earn a Heineken Cup place next season.

For sorry Edinburgh it was a sad day. A poor performance means their hopes of qualifying for the Magners League play-off are hanging by a thread.

Tries by Jamie Smith for Ulster and Tim Visser for Edinburgh with Niall O'Connor and Phil Godman each kicking the conversion and a penalty meant the sides started the second half tied at 10-10.

However a much more slick Ulster secured a good win with second-half tries from Simon Danielli, Ian Whitten, Ian Humphreys and Stephen Ferris while Humphreys added two conversions and a penalty.

Edinburgh's tries by Visser and Andy Turnbull were no consolation as Godman converted one and kicked a penalty.
