Ulster destroyed a poor Glasgow side by 33 points to 6 at Ravenhill, while Llanelli's Gareth Bowen was the star of the show in Thomond Park where Munster lost to Llanelli 19-12.

Ulster got off to a great start with summer recruit Rowan Frost bursting through for a fine try after six minutes which was converted by fly-half Adam Larkin. Stuart Moffat opened Glasgow's account with a 25th minute drop goal after the Ulster line had been threatened. Larkin put seven points between the teams again on the half-hour but Calvin Howarth quickly struck back with a penalty for Glasgow.

Then the Ulster pack produced another great drive in the 34th minute which concluded with skipper Andy Ward crashing over for a try. Larkin was able to add three further penalties to extend the home team's advantage. Ulster continued to dominate in the closing minutes and Shane Stewart produced a fine break to claim the home team's third try in the 77th minute.
