WHEN LUKE MARSHALL grounded Jared Payne’s excellently judged grubber kick just before half-time, Ulster looked set to record a vital away win against Treviso.

Payne crossed for the bonus point try on 78 minutes that barely looked plausible 15 minutes beforehand in the thick fog that enveloped the Stadio Mongio. Ulster now sit comfortably on 18 points in their Heineken Cup pool as Montpellier and Leicester Tigers tear into each other today.

The French side visit Ravenhill next and a home win will all but guarantee a home quarter final. Marshall, however, is taking nothing for granted. “The job’s not done yet,” he declared in a post-match interview with Ulster Rugby TV. You can check out the full interview here:
