Weekend round-up

Ireland crashed to an 18-7 defeat against England in Saturday's Autumn Nations Cup match at Twickenham.

Jacob Stockdale scored a second-half try with his Ulster teammate Billy Burns converting it.

That was the high point of the afternoon as the visitors were well beaten:

Sunday night saw Ulster make it seven wins in a row in the PRO14 after a heart-stopping finish:

Linfield still top the Danske Bank Premiership following a 2-0 victory against Glenavon on Saturday.

Second-place Larne beat Cliftonville 1-0 and there were also wins for Crusaders and Ballymena.

There are two games on Tuesday night - Linfield against Glentoran and Cliftonville at home to Ballymena. 

In Gaelic Games, Cavan have won the Ulster Football Championship for the first time since 1997.

They'll meet Dublin in the All-Ireland semi-finals:

Meanwhile, former Tyrone star Enda McGinley has been confirmed as the new Antrim football manager. 

Judd Trump has won the Northern Ireland snooker open, for a third year in a row getting past Ronnie O'Sullivan in the final.

The tournament was switched from Belfast to Milton Keynes.

And in golf, Northern Ireland's Stephanie Meadow clinched third place at the Pelican Championship in Florida.

It matches her previous highest finish on the US tour.
