The home side took the lead through Nick Williams when he collected a handoff from the right and ploughed through a Toulouse defender to reach out and touch down over the line.

Paddy Jackson added the conversion and then a penalty from close range after Sebastien Bezy was sent to the sin bin for the French team.

Toulouse spurned two opportunities to get back into the match as Toby Flood missed two penalty kicks from distance.

Andrew Trimble extended his side's advantage with a fine solo effort as he raced through the line and kicked the ball over the full-back before gathering again to dive over the line.

In the second half, the Irish team added another try through a sublime kick from Ruan Pienaar, which allowed Luke Marshall an easy score in the corner.

Ulster secured the bonus point by notching their fourth try of the night when Stuart McCloskey faked an offload to the right and raided forward before he weaved past one final tackle to touch down for the score.

Jean-Marc Doussain thought that he had got a consolation try for the visitors when he dived under the posts, only for a last-ditch tackle from Trimble to deny him as he punched the ball free of the Frenchman's grasp.

The home side completed their win as Chris Henry scored their fifth try by capitalising on a good drive at the maul before he dived over to clinch the emphatic victory.

Ulster move above Toulouse in second place in Pool A as a result of their bonus-point win.
