Ulster boss Les Kiss feels his side can still improve despite registering a 23-7 win over Connacht at the Kingspan Stadium on Friday.
Kiss' charges were in control for large periods but did not kick on and eventually outscored their visitors by two tries to one.
“It’s nice to go into Christmas in that way,” Kiss told The42.
“There’s parts of our game that we’re just not as consistent as we’d like to be, but I can’t fault the guys for digging in out in those conditions. We were the architects of being on the back foot a few times and not finishing them off at times because we made too many errors.
“(Ruan Pienaar) gets held up but if he passes, Lukey (Marshall) maybe goes over, Treaders (Kieran Treadwell) picks in the corner and is stopped. Little things like that where we can be better. We just knew tonight it was important to get the win and we got it.”
