Ulster staged a superb second-half fightback to beat Connacht 32-19 in Sunday night's PRO14 clash and claim their first win in Galway for more than five years.
Boxing Day 2015 was the last time Ulster had come away victorious from The Sportsground but two tries in the space of five minutes from back-row pair Jordi Murphy and Nick Timoney helped the visitors overturn a 14-9 half-time deficit.
Tom Daly’s try – following up first-half scores from Jack Carty and John Porch – got Connacht back in it but three late penalties from the excellent Ian Madigan (22 points in total) sealed the derby day bragging rights for the visitors.
Dan McFarland’s men now sit seven points clear at the top of Conference A, having played two games more than Leinster, after their ninth win in as many league matches this season.

Ulster’s 1st PRO14 away win since Galway 2015 & fully deserved it, storming back from 14-9 down at the interval. Madigan outstanding.
