If you had offered us nine points from our first two games before the season began we probably would have taken it straight away. Still, it's not unfair after the chances we left out in Treviso to be a little upset we don't have 10.
But we are one of four teams left without a defeat to our names and, given our consistency at the start of the season has tended to be something of a weakness in recent years, it's good to see us put together back to back wins to get underway with the possibility...
Ulster will be kicking themselves after failing to pick up a bonus point in their 22-11 win over Benetton Treviso at the Stadio di Monigo.
They had the chances, but ultimately they made too many errors and had to settle for a three try victory courtesy of Luke Marshall, Rob Herring and Ruan Pienaar.
Rob Herring and Stuart Olding's yellow cards hindered the Ulstermen in the latter stages of the game as Treviso, who had Filo Paulo sin binned, prevented them from scoring that all important fourth...
Last week wasn't perfect, but then again no opening day performance is.
We got the five points which is the most important thing, and it looks like we've unearthed two more back three gems in Rob Lyttle and Jacob Stockdale if their form so far is anything to go by. It's an excellent platform to build from going forward into this weekend and the season as a whole and it looks like our squad depth is holding up pretty well, especially at tighthead where Ross Kane (our fifth choice) did...
Ulster Rugby have today released a lengthy injury update, providing detail on how several key players are progressing in their returns from injuries.

Ulster started their season in perfect style with a 29-8 win over the Newport-Gwent Dragons at the Kingspan Stadium, with Ruan Pienaar in fantastic form only days after his departure from the province was announced.
Pienaar was imperious from scrum-half and scored a try in front of an excited home crowd, while debutant Rob Lyttle also had an excellent game on the wing, scoring two tries.
Lyttle's wing partner Jacob Stockdale also notched a great solo try of his own while Rob Herring rounded...
