Ulster can stun Leinster, insists Reidy


By Michael Sadlier

Sean Reidy has called on Ulster to upset all the odds tomorrow evening in Dublin (kick-off 5.35pm) when they take on Leinster in a key Guinness PRO14 clash for the Conference B rivals.

The Ireland international wants third-placed Ulster to throw everything at putting the brakes on their dire record when playing in Leinster's backyard - they have won just the once in Dublin since 1999 - and close the gap on the second-placed southern province.

"We're looking to really come out strong for Leinster," said the Kiwi back-rower, who sat out New Year's Day's dramatic 24-17 comeback win over Munster at Kingspan Stadium, which eased some of the pressure on Les Kiss.

"We know it's going to be tough but we're ready to go down there and do it. But it's plain and simple, if we don't turn up it will be a long day at the office.

"But the boys are ready, the boys are pumped, and the boys are going to take a good and physical attitude down there," added the 28-year-old, who has two Ireland caps.
