Late D’Arcy try helps Ulster scrape past Treviso

The visitors gained a narrow victory over the Italian side, which looked unlikely at one stage.

Ulster players celebrate their win.

Treviso 23-27 Ulster

A DRAMATIC LATE try from Adam D’Arcy gave Ulster a last-gasp away victory against Treviso.

Ulster had been well behind in the closing stages of the game, before a Paddy Wallace try, in addition to D’Arcy’s score, helped them secure a victory that had at one stage looked beyond them.

An early try from hooker Enrico Ceccato, coupled with a couple of points from Kris Burton, gave the hosts a sizeable advantage in the first half, though a Chris Henry try kept Ulster in the game.

A subsequent converted Alberto Di Bernardo try with twelve minutes left looked to have won it for the Italian side, before D’Arcy’s late score rescued Ulster.
