Bourgoin 24-17 Ulster (9-17)

Great finish from the French who scored their first around the hour of game and spent the last 20 minutes in Ulster's part.

Irish dominated the first half but were unable to contain Bourgoin, led by a great Benjamin Boyet.
A very good victory for us.
After a first half for Ulster, the very young CSBJ boys deserv the victory during the second one.
Fanstatic Benjamin Boyet prestation.
Weather -3° -4°
Better performance from Ulster but still very dissapointing to see the Ulster lads fall off a few critical tackles. Twice Bourgoin cut through Paddy Wallace as if he simply wasnt there. He looks capable going forward but offers nothing in defense. Looks like he aint the solution for Ulster.

Fair result in the end.
A strong first half from Ulster. They need a bit of life pumped into them to carry them through the second half. This match was not beyond them winning...
