Bath looking good away from home at Ulster

Bath looking good away from home at Ulster

Ulster went down 26-14 to Bath in a competitive pre-season friendly in Ravenhill on Friday night. Both sides played attacking rugby when possible, and there are encouraging signs for both parties ahead of their respective seasons.

Despite going down on the day, Ulster have plenty of positives to take from the match as they gave starts to a few new caps, with debutant Pedrie Wannenburg crossing for a try late in the game. Wannenburg, formerly of the Bulls and South Africa, made his debut for his new side and says there are good days ahead.

"We must not look at the result we must look at the positives, we kept the ball well in the first 20 minutes and we looking forward to the next game. Coming to Belfast is a new challenge for me and the atmosphere was very good and that is a positive for us, he said.

"I was a bit rusty as it was the first game of the season and there is still plenty of work to be done, we're looking forward to the next match.

"This is really a good bunch of guys and they have made me felt welcome since the moment I arrived. Bath played pretty well and it was good competition for us but it will be all about the results at the end of the season," he added.

Bath, who now have Lewis Moody in their camp, looked good as they shifted the ball through the hands and created tries for their backs. Matt Banahan crashed through the line for a nice try, as did fellow back Jack Cuthbert.

This is just a quick highlights clip to get you in the mood for the UK rugby season, which kicks off soon. Other noteworthy clips from the NH season will be posted over the next few months.
