BBC Sport - Pro12: Ulster beat Dragons to stay in play-off contention

Ulster beat Dragons to stay in play-off contention

Ulster continue their push for a place in the Pro12 play-offs with a 27-17 victory over Newport Gwent Dragons at Rodney Parade.

The match was finely poised at 17-17 with 10 minutes to go, but a Paddy Jackson penalty and John Andrew try, converted by Jackson, saw the visitors surge clear and condemn the Dragons to an eighth straight loss.

Wing Craig Gilroy and full-back Jared Payne had earlier touched down for Ulster who suffered a blow in the closing stages when prop Rodney Ah You was red-carded for a dangerous tackle.
