Ul­ster out of B&I Cup de­spite strong fin­ish

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - COMMENT -

UL­STER com­pletely dom­i­nated the fi­nal quar­ter but were un­able to break through Bed­ford’s stout home de­fence as Bed­ford held out to win 16-10 and qual­ify for the Bri­tish and Ir­ish Cup semi-fi­nals.

Ul­ster only led at the break 10-9 as too many in­dis­cre­tions al­lowed Will Hol­ley to kick three home penal­ties.

Nine min­utes into the sec­ond pe­riod Bed­ford re­gained the advantage with an in­di­vid­ual Rich Lane try which proved vi­tal as the vis­i­tors then threw ev­ery­thing at their op­po­nents with­out any re­ward.
