United in grief: Ulster fans pay tribute to the late Anthony Foley by holding up a message alongside Ulster and Munster flags during the clash with Exeter
Home stretch: Ruan Pienaar is determined to end his final season at Ulster with a trophy

Ulster may have lost in the most agonising way to Munster, but after Friday night's Pro12 clash in the Kingspan Stadium both sides united in a beautiful show of friendship.

A late Rory Scannell drop goal secured Munster a highly impressive victory against an Ulster side who let slip a commanding 14-0 lead.

But afterwards, the Ulster players showed huge respect by bringing beers into the Munster dressing room to share with their opponents.

At last week's funeral for the late Anthony Foley, Ulster boss Les Kiss and his squad joined the rugby community of Ireland in bidding farewell to the Munster legend.

“From last week with the funeral, Les Kiss was down, Rory Best was there, the supporters wanted to help up,” said Erasmus in quotes reported by the42.ie.

“I have so much respect for Irish people from the last two weeks. I always had respect for them, but I just couldn’t believe the way they stand for each other here.

"From before the game, to after the game, it’s always tough when you lose a game. But they came in there with a few protein shakes and beers afterwards into our team room and offered them to the guys.

“That takes special men to do that, so they obviously have a great spirit here. It’s not for nothing that they were leaders of the log."

Earlier this week, Ulster unveiled a plaque in memory of Foley which was hung in the away dressing room on Friday night.

Les Kiss said: “We just made a commitment beforehand that whatever happened, we’d do it. As you know, we put the plaque up there for Axel and it was just a gesture to stand with him and have a beer and a chat."
