The two number tens added spark to this eventful Heineken Cup match played in France between Ulster and Bourgoin.
There's a smashing hit put in by Bourgoin just before Ulster's excellent try.
Ulster recovered from the hit though and Paddy Wallace linked up beautifully with flying Tommy Bowe on the inside who skipped through a few despairing attempted ankle-taps before putting his open-side flanker Kieron Dawson over for the try.
Later in the game Benjamin Boyet made a brilliant break to burst through a gap and then throw a precision long pass to the open man out wide. Excellent vision to see the winger Jean-Franois Coux awaiting the try-scoring pass. The result - 5 points in the corner for Bourgoin.
Yet another high quality Heineken Cup match. Coming from a devout Super 14 fan, I'm really enjoying the action I've seen so far. European rugby is looking good again.
Final Score: 24 - 17 to Bourgoin
