Iain Henderson stated that his side’s defeat to Stade Toulousain in the Heineken Champions Cup Round of 16 will be challenging to move on from.
The Irish province was victorious in the first leg against the reigning European champions. It led on aggregate, heading into the closing stages of the return fixture at Kingspan Stadium on Saturday.
But Antoine Dupont’s converted try on 75 minutes saw Toulouse edge into a 50-49 lead over the two legs – an advantage they hope on to knock Ulster out of the competition. “When we look at the loss for us, it is with incredible frustration, rather than previous years where we have looked at it and went ‘we were well-beaten out there’ or ‘they were able to run away with it,’” Henderson explained.
