Paddy Jackson kicks Ulster to PRO12 victory over Ospreys

Ulster hero Paddy Jackson

Ulster 9 Ospreys 7

Ospreys started off this clash like a whirlwind before a battling Ulster side clawed their way back into the game to run out 9-7 winners and maintain their unbeaten run in this PRO12 campaign at the Kingspan Stadium, Belfast.

Paddy Jackson was in outstanding form for the home side scoring all Ulster's points, kicking a penalty with just a couple of minutes remaining to clinch the last-gasp victory over the Welsh visitors.
