ULSTER stand-in skipper for Friday night’s RaboDirect PRO12 match in Newport against The Dragons, Chris Henry, insists the mental attitude has to be right if they are to reverse their fortunes at Rodney Parade.
Newport has never proven to be a happy hunting ground for the Irish Province – winning only one of their last six visits.
A changed Ulster side from that which defeated Glasgow in the Heineken Cup last week travel to Wales not only as league leaders but with a 100 per cent record this season, and Henry insists they have no intention of relinquishing either.
However, the Irish international backrow also warned they cannot get complacent.
“We are delighted to have started so well but some of those games could have gone the other way. The realisation for us is not to get too far ahead of ourselves,” he said.
“If Glasgow had got their penalty kicks last week things could have changed and we may not have been able to grind it out as we did.
“But I also know that we are a grounded team, we know we have done well but that can all change very quickly and as long as we have the right mentality and keep the right attitude there is no reason why we can’t keeping winning every week.”
