Editor's Viewpoint: Well done, Ulster
The Ulster rugby team was well beaten by a very strong Leinster side in the Heineken Cup Final at Twickenham yesterday, but it was a good day for sport, and also a great advertisement for Irish club rugby which produced both finalists this year.
Though Ulster were defeated they did well to reach Twickenham and to give their loyal supporters such a special day out.
Congratulations are due especially to the outgoing chief coach Brian McLaughlin for his magnificent achievement in getting the team to the final. They will learn much from that tough experience, and the future is still bright.
