Ulster appeared to have taken hold of the game in Glasgow, with three penalties by Paddy Jackson in the middle of the first half.

Jackson had an important miss in the 31st minute and Glasgow closed the half with a try from Sean Maitland.

The conversion by Finn Russell added to his earlier penalty, allowing Glasgow to lead 10-9 at the break.

They went on to dominate the second half, scoring tries through Tommy Seymour and man of the match Mark Bennett, with Russell converting both and adding a penalty.

Nick Williams thought he had scored a try for Ulster but the line-out drive was referred to the television adjudicator, only to be disallowed.

Minutes later Bennett stretched out to score a controversial try for Glasgow, which was awarded by TV official after the ball appeared to slip from his hand.

Glasgow closed out the game in the Ulster half, with only a fine tackle from Andrew Trimble preventing them from getting the try bonus point.

The pressure is now on Ulster to retain a top-two place after losing twice against Glasgow this season.

They face Leinster at home and Munster away to wrap up the regular season before the play-offs.

It bemuses me when I read in the report that Ulster may not take second place ( for home advantage ). As it stands if they lose their last two games against the leagues top two teams,and Ospreys win their last three( aginst the three lowest ranked teams ) they are out, full stop!
