Glasgow got their first points on the board on the half hour mark, they strung together the phases for really the first time in the match and were rewarded with a penalty kicked by out-half Dan Parks.
Ulster looked to have let Glasgow back into the game for a short time until Humphreys knocked over his second successfully penalty effort on 35 minutes. That boosted the men in white and crucially Ulster scored just a few minutes from the half-time whistle when giant second row Justin Harrison crossed the whitwash after an Ulster line-out and driving maul.
Half-time: Glasgow 3 - 18 Ulster
The second half was fairly disjointed and Glasgow threatened more which is perhaps a reflection on Ulster's lack of matches in recent weeks, although Mark McCall's men extended their lead at the start of the second half with another Humphreys penalty. However, shortly after Glasgow scored their first try of the match, flanker John Beattie scoring from a scrum after Ulster, who were undoubtlably close to a yellow card from Welsh referee Tim Hayes, were penalised a number of times close to their line for offside. Parks couldn't convert. Glasgow 8 - 21 Ulster.
Humphreys and Parks exchanged penalties before Glasgow fought their way back into the match when they forced a tunrover at the breakdown and scored on 66 minutes. Parks made the conversion to bring the home side to within a converted try of Ulster. Glasgow 18 - 24 Ulster.
Glasgow threatened but solid Ulster defence kept them out in the final minutes of the match, the last score of the game a Humphreys penalty on 69 minutes.
Final Score: Glasgow 18 - 27 Ulster
