Kiss orders Leinster repeat to seal title play-off place

Ulster director of rugby Les Kiss has said his side must repeat their weekend performance if they are to lift the Guinness Pro12 title.

The province put one foot in the semi-finals with a mightily impressive 30-6 win over Leinster at Kingspan on Saturday but Kiss (right) believes it's vital to reproduce that standard over the coming weeks.

Ulster travel to Wales to face Ospreys in the last round of Pro12 fixtures on Saturday occupying the fourth and final play-off spot but are only one point ahead of Scarlets who visit Munster.

"Momentum is an interesting thing," said Kiss after the match. "It can stop pretty quickly on you.

"I would not be getting ahead of myself. That was basically the thrust of the conversion at the end of the game in the dressing room.

"We now need to take that step into next week and prepare in a similar fashion and prepare to a point where we can go to Ospreys and do a job.

"We've put a couple of games together but we need to nail this one next week to actually roll into the final stages."
