Leinster travelled to the Kingspan Stadium in Belfast on Saturday evening to take on Ulster and the visitors came away with a 25-10 victory.
The win sends Leinster top of the PRO14, at least temporarily.
It was a night where Rory Best made his 200th senior cap for Ulster, becoming only the fourth player from the province to do so.
The away side were in relative control for the majority of this game and were deserving winners on the night.

Sean O’Brien was a pretty popular choice for Man of the Match.

There was an electric atmosphere in Belfast for the interprovincial derby as this fan footage shows. However, the home support was not enough to see their team over the line in the end.

Simon Zebo’s omission from Joe Schmidt’s Ireland squad made headlines during the week and the Munster man responded with a stellar performance on Friday night. Dave Kearney, who is in the squad, lined out for Leinster tonight on the left wing and his display did come in for some criticism on Twitter on a night where he also picked up a yellow card.

All in all, a good night’s work was appreciated by the travelling Leinster supporters.
Leinster edging back up to 2012 levels for first time with an extraordinary pool of indigenous talent. #ULSvLEI
