It's all going according to plan for Ulster against Treviso at Kingspan Stadium tonight but the same can't be said for referee Lloyd Linton.

Andrew Trimble became the most-capped player in the history of Ulster rugby by making his 190th appearance for the province tonight.

Tries from Dan Tuohy, Sean Reidy, Paul Marshall and a superb individual effort from Craig Gilroy saw Ulster lead 27-0 at the break with a bonus point already in the bag.

One of the biggest cheers of the night was reserved for ref Linton, however, as he his the dirt with no one within touching distance of him.
