That's two out of two for Ulster.
Byline: Treviso 11 Ulster 22 BY CIARAN MCGREAL
ULSTER are the only Irish side with two Pro12 wins from two after Ruan Pienaar guided them to victory over Treviso in Italy Tries from Luke Marshall, skipper Rob Herring and the South African scrum-half wrapped up the win for Les Kiss' side, who couldn't find a fourth that would have sealed the bonus point.
Ulster got off to a flying start when centre Luke Marshall crashed through the tackle of Jayden Hayward after he cut back in to take Stuart Olding's pass on the angle for a try, which Pienaar converted for a 7-0 lead Tomasso Allan missed a penalty for Treviso after 17 minutes, but he did manage to get his side on the board from the tee just before the half-hour mark, to make it 7-3. Two minutes later Pienaar stretched Ulster's lead back to seven with his second successful kick of the night, this time from 40 metres after Treviso infringed on the ground.
There was some very bright play from the home side as they sought to get back in the game before the interval, and they deserved to cut Ulster's lead to 10-6 when Sean Reidy was caught offside and Allan added the three points.
Joint captain for the year Herring got in for Ulster's second try off the back of a maul early in the second half, and when Pienaar popped up on Jacob Stockdale's shoulder to accept an easy run behind the posts, Kiss' side had the win in the bag.
