Ulster have given their hopes of qualification to the European Champions Cup quarter-finals a massive lift.
They’ve defeated La Rochelle 20-13 at Kingspan Stadium to move top of Pool 1 with one game to play. Les Kiss’s side ran in three tries in all, with two in the first half through Rory Best and Jacob Stockdale and a third from Nick Timoney.
Ulster now sit on 17 points, one clear of La Rochelle and seven ahead of Wasps. Ulster travel to Wasps for their final pool game next week knowing a win secures them a place in the last eight.
Meanwhile, Connacht have booked their place in the quarter-finals of the European Challenge Cup after a 24-all draw away to Worcester.
Kieran Keane’s side overcame an awful start when they trailed 12-nil after five minutes, running in three tries in all from John Muldoon, Niyi Adeolokun and Tiernan O’Halloran.
