Ulster cruise to victory

first_img Press Association Ulster scored again a minute into the new half when a Connacht attacking pass went to ground just outside Ulster’s 22 and Bowe picked up and fed inside to Trimble who ran on unopposed to score his second. Jackson’s conversion made it 37-5. Luke Marshall then got over for Ulster’s sixth score after lovely hands from Bowe who hit Jackson on the loop before the fly-half put his centre colleague away. With Connacht replacement second row Michael Swift binned in the 57th minute, Trimble raced over for his hat-trick a minute later and Jackson’s fifth conversion took the home tally past 50. Just after the hour mark, the visitors finally got another score when replacement Leader’s effort was converted by fellow sub Nikora. But normal service was resumed five minutes later when Gilroy got on the end of McKinney’s chip through and the replacement fly-half then landed a superb conversion. Ulster were up and running inside five minutes after Dan Parks curiously opted to cross-kick for Fionn Carr when unable to kick directly to touch due to the ball being passed back to the former Scotland international from outside the visitors’ 22. Ulster gobbled up possession and scrum-half Paul Marshall darted over though Jackson was unable to land the conversion. Connacht, though, immediately hit back and, after securing the restart, they recycled the ball through multiple phases before Robbie Henshaw created the space out left for McScharry to score after seven minutes. Parks missed the extras but the scores only remained level for four minutes as Jackson slotted an 11th minute penalty to put Ulster 8-5 up. That became 13-5 when some slick handling saw Trimble pop up on the left wing and dance down the touchline to score Ulster’s second try which again went unconverted by Jackson. The home side then got their third when a Trimble break put Bowe over near the posts and, this time, Jackson added the conversion off the post. They had their bonus point two minutes later when a quick throw by Trimble was taken by Paul Marshall whose angled run got him in under the sticks. Jackson added the two points and Ulster were 27-5 up after just 23 minutes. Jackson then bagged his second penalty just before half-time to give the home side a 30-5 lead at the break. Ulster put themselves firmly back on track in their bid to reach the RaboDirect PRO12 play-offs with a thumping 58-12 bonus point win over fellow Irish province Connacht A hat-trick of tries from Andrew Trimble and a brace from Paul Marshall were added to by single touchdowns from Tommy Bowe, Luke Marshall and Craig Gilroy. Ulster fly-half Paddy Jackson added 16 points to the total with the boot while his replacement James McKinney landed one conversion. Connacht’s tries came from Dave McSharry and Darragh Leader with Miah Nikora converting Leader’s second-half effort. last_img read more

McIlroy hoping for good Friday

first_img In the current calendar year he is 50 under par for his first round and nine over for his second. He was first-round leader of the Open once before at St Andrews in 2010 with a 63 – the lowest first-round score in the tournament’s long history – but bad weather the following day saw him shoot 80. McIlroy benefited from benign morning conditions on Thursday but tees off at 2.27pm today in what is expected to be changeable weather. “When you go back out on Friday after a good score you know what you can do, so you’re going out with some expectations compared to Thursday,” he said. “I think I’ve just got to approach it trying to hit solid shots the first few holes and play my way into the round, just like I did (on Thursday). “I just have to take it one hole at a time, one shot at a time – I know everyone says it and you’ve heard it a million times, but it’s true. “I feel I’m well prepared this week for whatever the conditions,” he added. “I’ve practised in windy conditions the last few weeks. I’ve practised the shots that I might need for a bad day like Friday might be. Open Championship leader Rory McIlroy will take to the Royal Liverpool links later looking to avoid the dreaded second-round syndrome which has dogged him all year. “Will that help in any way? It might do, because you’re really just concentrating on one shot at a time when the weather is like that. “It’s not like I’ve shot good scores in first rounds and haven’t backed them up before. I’m used to doing that. I just haven’t done it recently.” Seven players begin the day in a share of third place on four under, including Italian brothers Francesco and Edoardo Molinari, world number one Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia. Scott, who squandered a four-shot lead with four holes to play at Lytham in 2012, was delighted to keep McIlroy in his sights. “It’s important, you’ve got to keep pace with a guy like Rory,” Scott said. “He has the potential to really put his foot down. I’ve seen him shoot lots of low rounds and there’s nothing stopping him from doing that either. “I don’t want him running away (with it). We’ve seen what happens, he wins majors by eight shots (in the 2011 US Open and 2012 US PGA). “And Martin Kaymer did it just a few weeks ago in the US Open and it makes for a tough weekend when you’re that far behind having to force it.” Defending champion Phil Mickelson, who has not won since his victory at Muirfield 12 months ago nor shot under par in a major since, carded a two-over 74. The Northern Irishman produced some blistering iron play in shooting a six-under-par 66 to lead the 143rd Open by one stroke from Italian Matteo Manassero. However, the two-time major winner knows he will have to combat a trend which has seen him regularly shoot over par in his second round. Press Associationlast_img read more

Vocaliser something to shout about

first_imgVocaliser got his season back on track in the Shelmalier Median Auction Race at Wexford. Manning said: “He’s done that well. He popped and we were walking and he just got a bit keen and wanted to stride on a little bit, but he’s done it well. “I was very happy, he travelled well here up into the straight and you’ve just got to keep them going up the hill here off the bend, it takes a bit of climbing up into the straight.” Chris Hayes registered a double at Down Royal on Friday and carried on in much the same vein as Duke Of Medina (7-1) banished a lacklustre Leopardstown performance to the memory with a clear-cut triumph in the Shelbourne Handicap, while Liberty’s Gift (9-2) landed the Scarawalsh Apprentice Handicap under Daniel Redmond. Press Associationcenter_img The Jim Bolger-trained three-year-old had failed to beat a single rival home in two previous appearances this campaign but, such was his solid form last term, he still went off the 2-1 joint-favourite. Kevin Manning was allowed to dictate terms to suit himself and had a willing partner, who stretched nicely clear when given the green light to put two and a quarter lengths between himself and Wider World at the line. last_img read more
