Neil Doak says Ulster defeat at RDS is "hard to take"

Ulster coach Neil Doak says it is very disappointing to come away from Saturday's 24-11 Pro12 defeat by Leinster in Dublin with nothing after playing "pretty well for the majority of the game".

Doak lamented his team's lapse of concentration at the start of the second half which allowed Leinster fly-half Ian Madigan to score an opportunistic try after taking a quick tap penalty.

"To be fair to Leinster, they were very clinical in the first half. They had three opportunities and got three penalties," said the Ulster coach.

"Then at the start of the second half, we switched off a little bit and Ian Madigan taps and goes and gets in for a score."
