With Ulster on a 12-point lead it was Kolbe’s wonderful chip-and-chase on the right wing which earned him the first of two tries at the Kingspan Stadium before scrum half Dupont took centre stage.
Really impressed with @UlsterRugby tonight in defeat. Played with lots of ambition in awful conditions – it’s just hard to beat teams with Cheslin Kolbe in them!

The French international scored a ludicrous individual try, cutting through the Ulster defence from 40m out and showing world class attacking skills and acceleration to reach the line.
