Cullen: 'Lots more to work on for us'


Leinster head coach Leo Cullen was pleased to see his side come through a tough challenge as they beat Ulster 24-12 at the RDS on Friday night, but says there is still plenty for the squad to work on ahead of some of big games over the next few weeks.

Cullen praised his team for how they raised their performance in the second half after going in 9-5 down at the break.

John Cooney kicked three penalties in the opening period, including two when Marcell Coetzee was in the bin for a high tackle on Sean Cronin, as the visitors frustrated the home team.

Leinster just had a single Dave Kearney try to show for their first half efforts, but kicked on after the break as Cronin, Robbie Henshaw and James Tracy all crossed to seal a well-deserved victory and what may prove to be a crucial bonus point.

The result leaves the reigning champions five points adrift of Ulster in Conference A with two games in hand.
