No no no no no, it was as the PRO12 we were going to win last year, but we've worked really hard to eradicate silly mistakes and we have a plan in place. We're in a really strong position and we have a great squad of guys here who all want to win it for Ulster and for our loyal supporters.

UR PR Team will be phoning me any day now.

Hartpury won all 30 games in National League 1 last year - glad Stortford won't have to play them!
