Kiss delights in "special win"


Les Kiss, Ulster’s director of rugby, hailed his side’s victory over Edinburgh on Friday night as a “pretty special win”.

Ulster won 14-7 at Ravenhill to remain in touch with those above them on the Pro12 ladder.

A penalty try and a Rory Scholes score inside the opening 11 minutes, with Paddy Jackson adding conversions to both, left the hosts in command.

Cornell du Preez’s try and Jack Cuthbert’s conversion brought Edinburgh back into the clash but the Scottish outfit were unable to prevent defeat.

It was a poor night on the injury front for Ulster, however, with number eight Roger Wilson suffering a back spasm prior to kick-off.

Iain Henderson (hamstring), Darren Cave (shoulder) and Peter Nelson (foot) sustained injuries during the clash, before Dan Tuohy limped off with an ankle problem.

Kiss was delighted with how his men responded, saying: “It was a pretty special win when you take into account we lost Roger before the game and then the injuries meant players were playing out of position.”

Kiss, though, admitted that there were significant concerns over some of the issues.

"We will have to assess the injuries, but a couple of them may be long term,” he said.

“The boys will rebound, and we have enough resources, so we will try not to get too downhearted about it.”
