Cape Town - Ruan Pienaar continued his rich run of form when he helped his Irish club Ulster clinch a home Heineken Cup quarter-final tie with a 22-19 away victory over Leicester on Saturday.

The result saw Ulster finish top of Pool Five with six wins from six matches.

Pienaar scored a try, kicked the conversion and landed five penalties, including two monsters from inside his own half.

While his form was erratic for the Springboks in 2013, Pienaar is red-hot in Ireland.

A few weeks ago he was also the star as he kicked Ulster to a 29-19 win over rivals Munster.
