Kiss delighted with Ulster focus

Les Kiss says Ulster's late bonus-point try in Friday's 32-0 victory over Zebre at Ravenhill shows his players' dedication and focus.

Paul Marshall went over for a fourth Ulster try two minutes from the end against the Italians to secure all five points on offer, and give the province's hopes of making the Pro 12 play-offs a boost.

Ulster remain remain fourth in the table after third-placed Scarlets beat Treviso on Friday.

Nick Williams scored two tries in the first half, with Peter Browne and Marshall going over in the second, while Paddy Jackson added 12 points with the boot from two penalties and three conversions.

Ulster also had three tries disallowed, and director of rugby Kiss was delighted that his players kept their cool to keep going for the crucial bonus point try despite the setbacks.

"It was a case of us doing the best thing at the given time on both sides of the ball, in defence and attack. We did that and it meant we separated the scoreline and made it a real mission to take the fourth try," Kiss said.

"We had a couple of disallowed tries out there today and maybe the referee and TMO did not help us with a couple of calls, but we did finish the game off well.

"What was really special for me was the way we scored that try in the end.

"The boys just said to themselves ‘we can do this’ and they got their reward. Yes, it was a relief to see them do that but they did complete the job and that is really pleasing for us as a coaching staff."
