Ulster ready to rumble in France, says confident McCall

Kyle McCall believes Ulster can back up last Saturday's dramatic Champions Cup victory over Clermont when they meet the French giants again on Sunday.

This time, though, Les Kiss's squad will need to rise to the huge challenge of producing at Clermont's formidable Stade Marcel Michelin fortress as Ulster bid to stay right in the hunt for European qualification.

But prop McCall is ready for the challenge and has vowed that Ulster will play with the same intensity they showed in last weekend's nine-try thriller at the Kingspan.

"It's a cauldron to go to but it's something we all relish," he said of taking on the Pool Five leaders again.

"We need to go in with what we brought to the first game.

"We believe in each other and hopefully we can do it," he said.

Ulster will travel hoping to replicate last season's impressive back-to-back wins over Toulouse.
