Ulster has had a big bang of wins over Welsh regions this season when they saw the Scarlet at Kingspan Stadium.
But the exhausted visitors fought all the way and probably deserved to get more than two bonus points from the game.
They were disappointed with their line-up and abilities in the air, but no one could fault their spirit.
Treadwell was lucky to be on the field before the break after connecting a shoulder to Javan Sebastian’s head. The Irish TMO advised Italian referee Andrea Piardi that the incident was associated with “minimal force” – resulting in a yellow card.
With 26 players missing, the Scarlets developed a particular game performance that caught Jac Morgan and Sione Kalamafoni.
With Morgan and Kalamafoni having an inspiring lead from the back row, the crowd took the game to the hosts, but it was Ulster who opened the scoring with a well-crafted attempt that was neatly finished by Lyttle in the lower left.
Back came the Scarlet, courtesy of a Kalamafoni ride for the line. Dane Blacker, Dan Jones and Steff Hughes then got together well so that Asquith can sit down.
Ulster only had 14 men at the time, and Lock Treadwell was shown a yellow for stopping Sebastian on his tracks with a shoulder to his head.
Some will say it should have been red. However, the advice of the Irish TMO proved crucial. Many will feel that Piardi not sending it is a questionable call at best.
But the hosts tore the initiative back when Center Stewart Moore intercepted a Blacker Pass and attempted 85 yards.
To their credit, the Scarlet refused to throw in the towel and scored a few tries in the third quarter. First, Steff Hughes hit a pinpoint diagonal kick that Conbeer collected to touch, then Tyler Morgan Evans sent clear over the flank for his first five pointers of the season.
Had the scarlet shooting been better they would have been clear. As it was, they were two points back as the game went into the final 20 minutes.
Treadwell – it had to be him – crossed an Ulster attempt before the Scarlets hit back with a late score from Price.
The Scarlet just fell short in Belfast when Ulster took victory in a lively PRO14 encounter.
The Welsh team scored two points – a loss bonus and a try bonus – but they could have won if they hadn’t wasted chances and had a faulty line-up.
But it was still a good performance by Glenn Delaney’s side, who were 26 players out.
This time by a mouth, driven backwards, with Phil Price having finished the train.
This time Steff Evans shows up with a carry on the right wing, then Dan Davis tries.
Yes. Kieran Treadwell, the man many Scarlets fans would believe should have received a red card sooner.
He’s just in time to see Jac Morgan infiltrate the Ulster defense with a great carry.
You moved the ball to the left from a scrum and Tyler Morgan comes up with the suggestion of a dummy and then a nice pass that Steff Evans tucks away.
Fans booed the referee’s decision to award only one penalty after a high tackle by Sione Kalamafoni.
Even so, Stephen Ferris says from the comments box that it’s good to have the fans back (a thousand of them on an experimental basis). .
The scarlet are excluded from the flag, Ryan Conbeer and Steff Evans are approaching.
From a crush at home, Steff Hughes starts a precise diagonal kick, which is collected by Ryan Conbeer when he ricochets and ended with serenity.
Ulster extends its lead with an attempt by flanker Sean Reidy at halftime.
Center Stewart Moore intercepts a Dane Blacker pass and drives 85 yards to try.
He hit Javan Sebastian in the head with one shoulder and only received a yellow card. The Italian referee pointed out the hit by the Irish TMO that the hit contained « minimal force ». .
The ball comes back and goes through the hands, with Dane Blacker, Dan Jones and Steff Hughes involved before Paul Asquith jumps over.
However, the Irish TMO advises that the contact has minimal force. Treadwell is shown a yellow card.
Dan Jones has another penalty chance but hits the post from an odd 20 yards.
Steff Evans shows his class a nice break during which he beats a few men.
Ulster Loosehead Eric O’Sullivan drops one knee on the deck and is punished about 35 meters away.
But Dan Jones makes an unkempt connection and the ball sails far over the post.
Matt Faddes is making up ground before sending a pass to Rob Lyttle and the pace of the wing is searing.
Stephen Ferris chose a great Ulster win and Tom Shanklin agrees.
« You have to face that pressure and when you play the best team in their own field you have to face the challenge. ”
This is the pre-game tub knock for Glenn Delaney before a game where the Scarlets face a team that opened the season with six straight wins.
While we’re talking about high quality performance – see Jac Morgan above – Sione Kalamafoni proves in this term that Guinness PRO14 is a must have.
He’s a start-up player and if he continues as he is he could, if he isn’t already, become a true fan favorite in the west.
His match with Marcell Coetzee, arguably the best-performing PRO14 player this season, should be enjoyed.
It’s a big night in Belfast and a thousand people can take part in the game.
The experiment is seen as an important step in a virus-ridden age to unlock the Guinness PRO14 and return to some sort of normalcy.
If you want numbers, here are numbers: The Brynamman boy did 30 tackles and made three sales in Galway.
The number of hits has been scored the most in a single game by anyone in the Guinness PRO14 this season, and the numbers Opta shared were only the second time in the last 10 years that a Scarlets player has done that had scored many goals in a league match (take a bow, Uzair Casseim, at 31 against Münster last year).
When his side opposed it, he stepped forward and took responsibility. He led and did not escape the nondescript work. He became a focus for team performance.
The Scarlets make three changes to the team that beat Connacht in Galway by a defiant 20-14 win.
Unfortunately, one of the dropouts is the always dangerous Johnny McNicholl, who played for Wales against Georgia yesterday.
Angus O’Brien becomes No.. 15 kit that fits into a back three that also includes Ryan Conbeer and Steff Evans.
He succeeds Morgan Jones, who has been identified as a close Covid contact and is therefore isolated under public health guidelines.
On a late change, Jac Price comes into the lock for Sam Lousi, who falls on the bench.
