It was the thought of days like today that made Wiehahn Herbst's decision to stay on with Ulster a straight-forward choice.
Herbst is yet to experience Kingspan Stadium on a knock-out night but the memory of visits from French superpowers such as Toulon and Toulouse have given him a taste.
"It's a great honour, and a privilege and a blessing, to be part of Ulster for another two years and I'm looking forward to winning silverware here at the province," Herbst said after penning an extension that will take him up to the summer of 2019.
"It was an easy decision," he said.
"We call it home at the moment. We've made it our home and everyone around us has made it feel like home."
