Kiss praises Ulster players after Glasgow win


Ulster director of rugby Les Kiss praised his players "composure and resilience" after Friday's 22-17 Pro 12 victory over Glasgow.

Ulster made it four wins from four to move to the top of the Pro 12 table, and Kiss felt the margin of victory at Scotstoun could have been even greater had his side turned their first half dominance into points.

Ulster led 15-7 at the break thanks to a try from centre Darren Cave, a penalty try, and a penalty and conversion from Paddy Jackson, but could have been even further ahead had referee Ian Davies not chalked off two scores.

"The team showed resilience and composure despite those setbacks, and I thought that was quality" Kiss told BBC Sport NI.

"We have loved those scores, but the game can do that to you. You can be dominant but not have the scoreline in your favour.

"We thought we were better for the points in the first half, but we knew we had to hold strong.

"We knew that Glasgow would come back, they always finish strong, but in that second half there was a period of ten minutes where the the pack led us brilliantly, where we were really intense in the physical battle."

Ulster centres Stuart McCloskey and Stuart Olding could miss the Pro 12 match against the Ospreys at the Kingspan Stadium next Saturday after suffering injuries against Gregor Townsend's side.

"It is not clear yet; it will obviously take us a day or two to work that out," the Australian continued.

"Look, it is not nice, but I am really pleased with the way Cavey [Darren Cave] and Louis [Ludik] stood up in the midfield for us. But I can't give anything clearer than that at this stage."
