    Munster v Ulster</div>

    Munster are looking to regain the lead in the Magners league when Ulster visit Thomond Park this evening. They'll certainly be boosted by the return of Rua Tipoki to the side for the first time since they played the All Blacks.

    Ulster make 4 changes to the side which lost to Leinster with Rory Best being rested so Nigel Brady starts, Tom Court and Kieron Dawson come in for Justin Fitzpatrick and David Pollock. While in the backs Clinton Schifcoske replaces Bryn Cunningham at full back.

    Can only see a home win here, Munster don't lose 2 matches in a row and I especially can't see that happening in a derby match.

    I too am expecting a big reaction to the loss last week. Should be a good match, fairly sure it's sold out.

    that's an absolute mare of a decision from Lewis, never seen a more obvious forward pass in my life. Seriously you'd wonder how this man is even allowed to ref at this level let alone international matches.

    7-0 Ulster and all coming from a daft kick by O'Gara

    Meh, it won't last.

    Poor Lewis seems to have forgotten what a forward pass even is, these aren't even close calls which is all the more worrying.

    well if O'Gara is missing sitters like that it could well do, desperate effort.

    hugely impressive start this from Ulster, some of their lines of running are superb despite the forward passes.

    10-0 Ulster

    that'll be a big concern for Munster, although not given the way he's playing, with O'Gara going off.

    Munster scrum is getting absolutely mullered tonight.

    Court done for collapsing the scrum and Warrick reduces the gap to 7 with the penalty.

    According to Setanta it's a hamstring injury for O'Gara.

    10-3 Ulster

    true on current form but that's **** all use to Ireland.

    Lewis endearing himself moreso to the crowd by reversing the penalty against O'Callaghan.

    well the first of what will no doubt be numerous warnings from Lewis.

    that's some bounce from Humphrey's kick but credit to Cave for sticking at it.

    Humphreys adds the extras and Ulster lead 17-3

    he's certainly putting his hands up in recent months, certainly looking for at least a spot on the bench for the Six Nations

    Boss pinged for taking out Stringer and Warwick reduces the gap to 11.

    Ulster 17-6

    now if the kick was lucky for the second try it wasn't lucky for that one there, lovely kick and take from Humphreys and a great show of pace from McCrea to get in.

    Missed conversion from Humphreys and Tipoki looks to be in trouble as well, these injuries are certainly a worry with Sale and Montauban on the horizon

    22-6 Ulster HT

    Jesus O'Briain, talk about clutching at straws, no question of Cave being offside for the second try.
