WATCH: Epic Penaud tries can't sink Ulster BUT bolster his world class status

French winger Damian Penaud scored a stunning brace against Ulster on Saturday to showcase his world class talent in the Heineken Champions Cup.

The dynamic Clermont star scored his first try just before half time after getting on the end of a cross field kick from inside centre Tani Vili in dramatic fashion.

Penaud showed incredible poise to control the ball and get downward pressure with such little space to work with and things only got better for the speedster.

His second try came just shy of the hour mark when he got the ball 40 metres out and chipped over the Ulster full back before winning a footrace to the line.

Despite Penaud’s excellent tries it was the Irish side who came away with a 23-29 win at Stade Marcel-Michelin and full match highlights are available below:

Ulster head coach McFarland said: “It’s obviously a terrific achievement to come and win in Clermont at any stage for any team. They are a great team.

“They are probably not playing their best rugby at the moment, but they still have the same players who are able to do amazing stuff.

“I thought we played really well in the way we controlled the game. The bottom line is we’ve got a lot of lads out there who aren’t maybe considered our starters but have been performing really well. They were magnificent today.

“In the game itself there were a litany of things which were difficult to deal with in terms of Michael Lowry going off and Rob Baloucoune going off.

“I’m so proud of the lads and what they’ve done today. The bottom line is the last time we came here we played really well in the first half and then the game slipped away from us just after half-time.

“Good teams are able to squeeze you in that period if they are a little bit behind, and today they did squeeze us in that third quarter.

“Ultimately we were able to get back into the game with some good team play and some huge individual play as well.”
