Best backs Ulster youth

Ulster skipper Rory Best believes that if his team are able to win the PRO12 this season then it will bode well for campaigns to come.

Speaking ahead of their semi-final against Leinster on Friday, Best said that his only regret was not being able to win a trophy with Ulster since his debut in 2006.

The Ireland hooker commented that his team is young and fearless which makes them dangerous opponents.

"You look at the young guys, when they learn how to win, if they do it young enough they could go on to win several things," he told the Belfast Telegraph earlier this week.

"Once they learn how far you have to push yourself to win that should be it."

Best added that they will have to be at their very best when they take on Leinster at the RDS on Friday if he is to achieve his goal of winning the PRO12 this year.

“To come through a play-off system and get to a final where there are only two teams left in it and win would be a massive thing for me to be involved in," he added.

"Obviously we have a massive 80 minutes before we think about that but the motivation for me is to lift a trophy with Ulster.”
