So, no rotation policy just yet for Steve Williams.
The Ulster caretaker coach, who made a bold selection last week for the trip to Bourgoin in dropping Justin Harrison, Rob Dewey and Bryn Cunningham, is determined to bring stability in these turbulent times for the province and has backed the same XV to do the job for the crucial Magners League trip to Connacht tomorrow night.
Ulster produced their best rugby for a year in the first-half against the French side, scoring two superb tries to lead 17-9.
And although the game - and with it their Heineken Cup hopes - eventually slipped through Ulster's fingers in the second-half, Williams has shown faith in the players for what will be a similar test tomorrow in the bottom of the table clash.
"It is very much a case of keeping with the same 22, we need to finish the job that we started in France and it is up to the same group of players to finish it this week," said Williams, who hopes captain Rory Best will lead from the front.
"We know we were responsible for our ups and downs last week more than the opposition. So we are ready to go. We all have a clear idea in our minds what we need to do on Friday night."
That means no return for former Wallaby Harrison, big-name summer signing Dewey or veteran full-back Cunningham while David Humphreys is still a week away from being available as he nurses an ankle injury.
Williams is set to remain as temporary head coach for the next four games, even if Ulster make an appointment before then to replace Mark McCall, who resigned last week.
And he hopes by then the side will have returned to winning ways, starting tomorrow when an Ulster victory would see them move off bottom spot in the table.
"To be honest with you, nobody wants it any more than the guys who are here," he added. " Everyone is hurting and wants to win so much. There is so much inside us and if you are in this business, you can't get caught up in external factors. It has to come from within."
Connacht coach Michael Bradley and his assistant Eric Elwood are waiting on fitness reports on a number of players before naming his side today.
Mel Deane comes back into the squad after missing the 75-8 European Challenge Cup win over Spanish Cetransa El Salvador through injury.
Andy Dunne, who joined Connacht at the start of the season but who has been out of action since suffering a knee injury in the pre-season clash with South Africa, is named in the squad and could make his competitive debut. Dunne successfully returned to club action at the weekend.
Another player who has successfully returned to club action from injury, and is included in the extended Connacht squad, is former Irish international Matt Mostyn.
"It is great to see the likes of Andy and Matt coming back from long-term injuries as they will give us options at the back," said Bradley. "Injuries are an ongoing issue in rugby and we just need to check on a few others before finalising the team and the bench for this match.
"It is a big game for us and everyone is looking forward to it, not least as there should be a great atmosphere in the Sportsground on Friday night."
Ruled out through injury are John Hearty and John Lyne.
