Ulster captain, Chris Henry said his team did their best in Stade Pierre Antoine om getting the first win in France with a 9-8 success over Castres on Saturday.
“It was a real difficult game for us, they played really well and we started very slowly and it wasn’t pretty but to get a win was special for everyone involved.”
“We had to dig deep and I think the people that came off the bench made a big impact as well, we’re all exhausted it was a real heavy pitch and it wasn’t the ground underfoot that we wanted to play on.”
“For us not to play well and still win those are the games that can make a difference to the season.”
“I think with the dominance of the scrum and the way we were playing, Roger went off early doors which is another blow but hopefully he’ll be back quickly.
“That pack obviously has been changed a bit due to injuries but overall it has been a settled team and that makes a big difference because you have confidence in each other.
“I though the scrum was a crucial part but there is certainly a lot to work on at the moment especially our line out.”
“It’s a difficult weekend of rugby because you’re playing and then you are waiting on other results with points and the calculators out, it’s out of our hands now which is the hardest thing.”
“Whatever happens now we certainly tried our best, to get a qualification you would take it at the start of the year the icing on the cake would to be at home but that is out of our hands.”
