Ulster coach Les Kiss 'gutted' by Pro12 semi-final defeat

Ulster coach Les Kiss says he and his players felt 'gutted' in the dressing room after going down 30-18 to Leinster in the Pro12 semi-final at the RDS.

"I thought it was a great semi-final. They got the momentum early and the bounce of the ball went their way but they also won the '50/50s' so you have to take your hat off to them.

"Our boys went at them and tried their best in the second half and I can't fault them for effort, endeavour, ambition or appetite for the battle.

"Leinster played with the ambition they are renowned for, they delivered and they are through. Good luck to them," said Kiss.
