Action and reaction from the Magners League game at Ravenhill on Friday night.

Dan Parks kicked 20 points as Glasgow came from behind to beat Ulster at Ravenhill in the Magners League.

Ulster led 13-6 at half-time, with Tom Court scoring a try and Ian Humphreys a conversion and two penalties, to two penalties by Parks for Glasgow.

Parks kicked four further penalties in the third quarter before wing Thom Evans scored a try in the corner and Parks converted to seal the outcome.

Victory takes Glasgow to the top of the table, level on points with Edinburgh.

Parks kicked his first penalty in the sixth minute but missed with his next attempt six minutes later.

Humphreys replied with two successful kicks before the Scottish side were reduced to 14 men when prop Jon Welsh was sin-binned in the 31st minute.

The home side took advantage of their numerical advantage when Court barged over for a 35th-minute try, with the help of Willie Faloon and Chris Henry.

Humphreys converted to make it 13-3 but Parks knocked over his second penalty to reduce his side's deficit to six in atrociously wet and windy conditions.

The Glasgow fly-half landed four penalties in the first 20 minutes of the second period and then Evans raced over in the corner with 13 minutes left after good work by Scotland captain Chris Cusiter, on as a replacement.

Parks adding the two points to put the game beyond Ulster.
