Win for Ulster, Connaught and Leinster beaten


Leinster were beaten by an Impressive Glasgow side 33-25 as Tommy Seymour ran in four tries for the Scottish side in Glasgow.

Despite going into the break leading 19-12 thanks to two tries in the last three minutes from Josh Van der Flier and Zane Kirchner respectively, Leinster’s complacency cost them after Seymour punished inaccurate passing.

Two tries for Seymour in the 53rd and 55th minute put the Glaswegians ahead by a point, his fourth try overall in the 73rd minute cementing the win for his side.

Leinster will face another trip to Scotland when they face Edinburgh on the 16th of September whilst Glasgow will face Cardiff Blues in Wales on the same date.

Ulster defeated Dragons 29-8 after teenager Robert Lyttle scored two tries to hand his side the win and bonus point in their opening Pro12 tie in Ulster.

Despite Ulster going behind early thanks to a Pat Howard try and Nick Macleod penalty, they battled back and after a try from Jacob Stockdale and Lyttle, the Irish side went into the interval leading.

The tie was put to bed early in the second half when Ruan Pienaar crossed over just after the break followed quickly by Lyttle’s second and then captain Rob Herring getting on the scoresheet to confirm the bonus point.

Ulster will be delighted to have won their opening game of the Pro12 and will be hoping to build on it when they face Scarlets on the 16th of September in Wales.

Connaught’s poor form continued as they were thrashed 32-11 against Ospreys in Galway.

Despite been hammered by 36 points last week to Glasgow, the Devil’s own seemed to not have learned their lesson as the tries poured in for Ospreys.

The first half was a quite affair, with Osprey going into the break leading 10-3, Jack Carty with a penalty for Connaught whilst the visitors scored a penalty and a conversion thanks to Sam Davies, followed by a try by Rhys Webb.

The majority of the damage was done in the last ten minutes when Tyler Ardron, Webb and Jeff Hassler and went over to finish off an already deflated Connaught.

Pat Lam’s men will be hoping to get off the foot of the table when they meet Zebre on the 17th of September in Parma, Italy.
