Rory Best hoping to pile more misery on Blues

Captain Rory Best has warned Ulster "it's now time to front up."

"The big thing for us now is that if we have another wobble there is no time to fight your way back," he said.

Leinster have a solid record at Ravenhill, having lost a meagre two of their last ten in Belfast and, generally, had the advantage in this particular Inter-provincial rivalry.

The problem is the boys in blue need to have one eye on the plain victory and the other on the bonus-point which comes with four tries, such is the precarious nature of their position in fifth, 10 points back of Ulster.

"They'll hold no fear coming here. They're the one team that probably hold the least fear (of Belfast) but at the same time we have had time to prepare for it," said Best (left).

The idea of Fortress Ravenhill just does not exist for Leinster. Their valiant effort against Toulon in Marseille could possibly provide the belated kick-start to their botched League campaign.

"They're coming off the back of a five-day turnaround, but they have quality players throughout their squad," added Best.

"Even if they make changes from Sunday, it's still internationals they'll be bringing in."
