Ulster talisman Charles Piutau insists the province must improve their stuttering form - starting tonight against Zebre at the Kingspan Stadium (7.35pm).

The star full-back has been impressive since arriving this summer but hasn't been able to stop his new side falling to a run of three straight league defeats.

But with lowly Zebre at home tonight, the All Black says it's high time to turn things around.

"We started with a bang and had a few wins on the trot but the last few weeks haven't been good enough," he admitted.

"We haven't done as well as we would like to. We're lucky it's still early because we can improve."

Ulster have Chris Henry in the side for the first time this season while Luke Marshall and Craig Gilroy have been released from Ireland.
