Rory Scannell and Lion Conor Murray set the tone for the match inside the opening thirty minutes with two well-worked tries.

The new red card rule came into play just before half time as Ulster’s Will Adisson was dismissed in the 39th minute. Ulster were restored to fifteen men twenty minutes later under the new law bu thtat didn’t stop Munster.
