Pride and joy: Rob Herring and daughter Milly join forces to celebrate his 200th appearance for Ulster last Friday night

As Milly Herring trotted happily across the Kingspan Stadium turf and into the waiting arms of her doting grandfather on Friday night, it was impossible not to think of how the family would have been denied so many such moments over the past year and a half.

Gathered to celebrate Rob Herring’s 200th Ulster outing in the win over Benetton, the clan congregated in one corner of the stadium after the game, laughing happily as the toddler born last April stole the microphone from her Irish international father during his post-match interview to offer her own measured reflections on proceedings.

"Hiyaaaa,” she giggled to all those watching the northern province’s third win in succession at home on television.
