Win over La Rochelle leaves Ulster top of Champions Cup pool


Ulster 20 - La Rochelle 13: Ulster knocked La Rochelle off top spot in European Champions Cup Pool One with a hard-fought 20-13 win over the French side at a wet and windy Kingspan Stadium on Saturday. Bales opened the scoring with an ninth-minute penalty after huge early pressure from La Rochelle had nearly put Vincent Rattez in from a Jeremy Sinzelle cross-kick. That became 6-0 on 16 minutes after Ulster were penalised at a lineout and Bales landed the kick. John Cooney missed the conversion, leaving Ulster trailing by a point, which was how it stayed until Jordaan's return. Pic: INPHO/Tommy DicksonCooney's conversion put Ulster 17-13 up and that became 20-13 when the scrum-half added a 49th-minute penalty.
