For the third straight home game, Sean Reidy was man of the match, while loosehead prop Eric O'Sullivan was also impressive, but who else stood out?Michael Sadlier takes a look:Starting XVAs usual some really neat foot-work and was solid at the back. He also helped put Ulster on the front-foot when he had the opportunity.Provided the assist for Lyttle and then moved into the centre after Marshall’s departure. His yellow card came from a poor enough tackle and he didn’t return.His fourth appearance of the season ended after just three minutes after he had driven up the ball and seemingly shipped some knee damage. Not on long enough to rate.Took his interception try really well and showed his pace to run it in from distance for his second try from the same number of games.The winger did really well to step inside O’Brien for Ulster’s opening try. Then couldn’t get back to prevent Conbeer’s score but finished strongly.Not as dominant as he would have liked in the opening half, but came very close to putting Lyttle away with a cross-kick. Needed to be more influential.Helped launch the counter for Ulster’s first try and did really well to prevent Evans from scoring. Threw a poor pass to Johnston and was gone soon afterwards.
. Also won an important turnover, helped Reidy score and just kept putting in aggressive and accurate work.A crooked throw on the half-hour mark didn’t look great and this was a quiet enough outing for him before he made way for McBurney.He was asked to go again this was maybe a game too far for the tighthead. Was pinged for collapsing a maul and might have been sin-binned.The skipper won a critical turnover on his own line and did his usual by getting stuck in as best he could before being replaced by his younger brother.The yellow card – it could easily have been red – came just after he’d given away another penalty. Made some amends with Ulster’s bonus point try.There were some early carries and at times he supplemented Coetzee’s power. He did really well to put Kalamafoni into touch off one dangerous moment.Made a really good carry towards the end of the half and was rewarded a few minutes later with a score. He put in another typically hard-working display.A bit quieter than before but still put in the work even though this was his first game of the season without a try. Still managed to play well though.ReplacementsCraig Gilroy (for Marshall, 3 mins) - 6Jordi Murphy (for Rea, 53 mins) - 5Adam McBurney (for Andrew, 56 mins) - 6Tom O'Toole (for M Moore, 56 mins) - 5Alby Mathewson (for Cooney, 56 mins) - 7Ian Madigan (for Faddes, 57 mins) - 5Kyle McCall (for O’Sullivan, 72 mins) - 4David O'Connor (for A O’Connor, 72 mins) - 4"
