Ulster kept themselves in the race for the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs by chalking up their fifth win from their last six league games with a 38-16 victory over an under-strength Edinburgh outfit.

Sep Visser drew first blood with the opening try for Edinburgh after only four minutes, but the home side soon overpowered their visitors and had established a 21-8 advantage by the interval before going on to claim a convincing victory.

Paul Marshall, Stefan Terblanche, Adam D'Arcy, Chris Cochrane, Ian Humphreys all touched down for Ulster, with a penalty try and four conversions from South African fly-half Ruan Pienaar making up their points. Tim Visser also scored a late try for Edinburgh, with Phil Godman kicking two penalties.

With five games left, Ulster now go into the league's two-week break in good shape after notching up another bonus-point win. For Edinburgh, though, the result marked a sixth straight league defeat.
