Watch: Ulster's John Cooney Finishes Gorgeous Team Try Versus Clermont

John Cooney strengthened his case for a starting spot in the upcoming Six Nations as the Ulster scrum-half finished a superb team try at the Sports Marcel Michelin.

Dan McFarland's outfit travelled to France knowing they could do their Champions Cup aspirations a world of good with a win over Clermont. After an impressive win over Munster last time out, Ulster picked up where they left off with a brilliant start.

A superb Jack McGrath tip pass freed Sean Reidy who in turn set Marty Moore away. Running off the prop's shoulder was Cooney with a typical well-timed support line. The result was a well-worked try.

Cooney was singled out for praise by opposite number Morgan Parra prior to the game and had been practising his kicking with recordings of the crowd noise in preparation.

His form will leave new Irish boss Andy Farrell with a big call to make ahead of Ireland's clash with Scotland next month.
