Ulster player ratings

Press Association

Stefan Terblanche - Played much of the game on the back foot as Leinster dominated for long periods. 6/10.





ANDREW TRIMBLE - Arguably Ulster's most dangerous attacker in terms of pre-match form, but he had few opportunities to impress. 6



DARREN CAVE - Made a thrilling early break as Ulster looked to take the game to their opponents, but all to no avail. 7



PADDY WALLACE - Made a telling break that created Ulster's second-half try. Never gave up. 7



CRAIG GILROY - Had his moments in attack, and remains a player to watch for the future. A dark horse for the 2013 Lions? 7



PADDY JACKSON - Endured a testing first half and was never allowed to settle in the game. 5



RUAN PIENAAR - Kicked 15 points for his team, but it was not Ulster's day. 7

RORY BEST - Ulster's Ireland international hooker gave everything to resist the blue Leinster tide. 7

JOHANN MULLER - The Ulster captain was powerless to prevent a relentless Leinster performance. 6



DAN TUOHY - Scored a consolation try for his team, but it wasn't their day. 7



STEPHEN FERRIS - Ireland's outstanding back-row forward had to play second fiddle on a day when Leinster dominated. 6



CHRIS HENRY - Made a couple of early thrusts, but struggled to maintain momentum. 6
