Andrew Porter was speaking ahead of Leinster's Champions Cup final against La Rochelle at the Aviva Stadium on Saturday.
In the wake of their URC semi-final loss to Munster last weekend, the loose head prop spoke of his side's disappointment at being knocked out of the league at the last four stage for a second year in a row.
It’s obviously tough because you can look on as a spectator and say, ‘I could have done this or I could have done that’, but we had complete faith in the guys that were out there playing.
Just one or two things, we didn’t get the rub of the green. It was frustrating, more for the lads who were playing. It’s disappointing, but we’ve got something else to look forward to now, so it’s not the end of our season just yet.

However, Porter was quick to point out that such is the importance of Champions Cup, that the disappointment of the URC will be far back in their minds.
“It’s obviously incredibly tough to not let it seep into the week that it is.
“It is an incredibly special and important week, but the coaches have been great in terms of moving on from the weekend and focusing on the next job at hand.
“To be honest, it’s a bigger job now.
“It’s about getting that fifth star on the jersey. You don’t see many URC or PRO14s or whatever you have on the jersey. You see those stars that are on the jersey, so that’s the thing we are looking forward to the most this week.”
