VIDEO: Andrew Trimble's game-breaking try against Scarlets
Soft hands, tight angles, can’t lose.

JUST IN CASE you were out and about last night, unable to reach the remote or had allegiances to another province in RaboDirect Pro12 action; here’s the highlight of Ulster 47 -17 win over Llanelli Scarlets.

Though the score-line could suggest otherwise, this was a rare moment of fluency in a game with more than its fair share of errors.

Look out for the soft hands of Paddy Jackson to set Darren Cave running against the grain with a reverse pass. The centre takes contact, but only after popping the ball off to Andrew Trimble who spotted the route leading all the way under the posts.

It wasn’t just the prettiest try of the night. In the scheme of Ulster’s 47-17 win, it came with the score 26-10 after Llanelli had threatened a mini-comeback. It was also Ulster’s third of the game and the quick conversion that followed was a massive signal of their intent to twist the knife and chase a bonus point to extend their lead at the Pro12 summit.
