Cape Town - A try by Robbie Diack in the 73rd minute gave Ulster a come-from-behind victory against the Southern Kings in their PRO14 encounter played in Zwide.

Diack, a former Western Province and Stormers No 8, managed to get over in the right hand corner to secure a 43-36 win for the visitors in a pulsating encounter. 

Despite leading 22-10 at half-time, the home side were not able to hold on for victory with Ulster managing two tries in the final 10 minutes to secure an away win with a bonus point. 

The Kings are still looking for their first victory in the competition and next play Scarlets at home on Sunday, November 26.
