Ulster must keep focus, insists Reidy


By Jonathan Bradley

After another week of unwanted headlines, Ulster flanker Sean Reidy says the province must put all the negativity to one side as they try to steal back a place in the Guinness PRO14 play-offs.

Ulster travel to Munster today (5.35pm kick-off) needing a bonus-point win and hoping Edinburgh take nothing from their game with Glasgow this evening to book a spot in next week's quarter-finals.

Despite everything at stake, the build-up has been dominated by yet more criticism from former players, most notably Brian O'Driscoll. Reidy though is paying little attention.

"There's no point," said the Kiwi-born flanker.

"Some of the rubbish that goes on in the media nowadays does no one any good. We're just focused on our own game and what we can do this weekend."

For Ulster, Craig Gilroy is back but John Cooney and Charles Piutau miss out.
