Ballymena Rugby Club clinched the Soni Ulster Championship title in style tonight.

Andy Graham’s side crushed City of Derry 69-0 under the Eaton Park floodlights to clinch the 13th Ulster League title in the club’s history.

It will also give the Braidmen a boost ahead of their forthcoming All-Ireland League Division 1B play-off against Dublin University later this month, as they attempt to gain promotion back to the top tier of Irish club rugby.
