Ulster have opened the European Cup campaign with a famous victory.
They've beaten Clermont Auvergne 29-23 in France - their first win at Parc des Sports Marcel Michelin.
It was dramatic, but well-deserved in the end - John Cooney's brilliant late penalty proving sealing it.
There was a debut for Springbok star Duane Vermuelen who emerged from Covid isolation to play his part before being substituted in the second half.

Sensational from Ulster in France, kicking off the European campaign with a famous victory, winning it after a dramatic penalty try, TMO called in. Also👍top ref Wayne Barnes👏
It was also a decent day or another of our leading sports clubs based in east Belfast...
Glentoran were the big winners in Saturday's Danske Bank Premiership fixtures.
They were the only team in the top three to win, easing to a 3-0 victory at Carrick despite having Robbie McDaid sent off.
Jay Donnelly struck twice with Shay McCartan also on target for the visitors.
Linfield dropped what could to be crucial points as they were held to a 1-1 draw at Windsor Park by bottom club Warrenpoint Town.
Same score for leaders Cliftonville and they needed a late goal from Paul O'Neill to salvage a point in Portadown.
