Prop Callum Black celebrated his 100th cap for Ulster by scoring his first try for the province last night.

Black scored Ulster’s only try as Les Kiss’ side defeated defending champions Glagow Warriors to return to the top of the Pro12 on points different from Connacht.

“It was a nice little bonus as I hadn’t scored in 100 games I was just happy to get the win and the try and hopefully I won’t get any more stick as I’d been getting a bit over the last few weeks,” said Black.

“People are saying I’m now going to have to wait another 100 games for another try but this could be the start of it now that I have got my mojo back it could be every week hopefully.”

Ulster struggled to get any real momentum on the night and had to dig deep for the victory.

“We said in the changing room at the end things aren’t going our way but it shows the character of the side if we can win ugly,” he added.

“We are missing out on a few bonus points here and there which could be vital but the win comes first. We have this run of games at home and we have to use that to our advantage.

“This block of games leading up to the break is really where we have to get some distance between the other teams and get a solid place at the top of the table.”

Black is hoping Ulster can start finishing the chances they are creating off.

“I think at times we are letting ourselves down with the lack of concentration,” he said.

“When we get that clean ball we can cut sides to pieces. It’s just about going through the phases and being patient.”
