Ulster captain Johann Muller says he was convinced that his side would beat Leinster in Saturday's Heineken Cup final.
"The match showed that we've got a huge amount of hard work to do because we're not where we want to be at the moment," the South African said.
Muller believes that new coach Mark Anscombe's role will mainly be about "fine tuning".
"What we've been doing over the last two or three years has been really good and we've made good progress. It's all about the small things and the small errors that you make.
"He's [Anscombe] has got a job to do and he hasn't got a huge amount of time to do it.
"He's going to be under a little bit of pressure but he's not going to try and reinvent the wheel."
