Italian job: David Humphreys

Ulster boss David Humphreys reckons their win over Treviso has heaped all the pressure on Leicester ahead of their clash at Montpellier on Sunday.

The four-try win saw Ulster move seven points ahead of the Tigers at the summit of Pool 5.

And with the Tigers facing a tough task in going to Montpellier and getting a result, Humphreys believes his side did all that was asked in Italy.

"We knew we had to get five points to build some pressure on Leicester," said Humphreys.

"When we mapped out the season we said we wanted to be top of the table in the Heineken Cup at the end of round four and we are sitting well at the moment.

"The pressure is now on them and we can sit down and relax when we watch their game on Sunday.

"We would have probably taken four points before the game, so to come away with five means that is two jobs very well done over the last two weekends.

"We have played against Benetton Treviso enough over the last few seasons to know what a threat they can be. We talked about replicating what we did last week, getting off to a good start and putting them under pressure.

"We probably made too many mistakes in the first half but we were more clinical in the second half. Then we took the chances when they came along and I am delighted to get the five points."
