Stephen Ferris Did Not Hold Back When Describing How Badly Ulster Beat Leinster In Belfast

Last month Leinster took an absolute beating at the hands of Ulster at the Kingspan Stadium in Belfast, and ahead of the two sides meeting again tonight in the Guinness PRO 12 semi-final Stephen Ferris has been basking in the glory of that performance on April 30th.

The final score was 30-6 in favour of the home side, and it could have been more as Ulster carved through the Leinster defence time and time again, but Ferris has warned that a loss this time out could have serious repercussions for Leo Cullen and his squad.


But more notably, Ferris also took aim at Leinster's centre pairing on that night who will again be lining out to face Ulster tonight in Ben Te'o and Garry Ringrose.

If Leinster lose this game, there'll be calls for boys' heads because it won't sit well.

The last game is a pretty big deal because we went out and gave them a hammering and to be honest, the Leinster boys would have felt pretty embarrassed after it.

You can't mask it, they were absolutely hockeyed. It could have been a lot more.

Big names like Ben Te'o and Ringrose, there was a lot of smoke blown up those guys' asses and the two Ulster centres (Stuart McCloskey and Luke Marshall) ripped them to shreds.

We made Ringrose and Te'o look very amateur up in Belfast. Hopefully the weather holds up because if it does, we can get good set-piece ball and hopefully we can get over the line.

I think there's an opportunity to go and win this bloody thing. We've got a massive game this weekend and then a final to play if we make that. They've just got to take it one game at a time as they have done in the last four or five weeks.

He sounds like he's seriously up for it.


This will be Ben Te'o's last game for Leinster before he departs for Worcester, and it will be interesting to see what has been learned and how Leinster respond in the semi-final. Considering that they are unbeaten at home and Ulster's record in Dublin, you would expect a far tougher night for Ulster this time around.
