Best emphasises importance of home wins

Ulster hooker Rory Best says Ulster cannot afford to lose any more home games if they are to contend for the top four positions in the Pro12 which would ensure qualification for the end-of-season semi-final play-offs.

Best also believes that the Irish province remain "in the mix" for a place in the last eight of the European Champions Cup despite emerging without any points from Sunday's Pool Five encounter with Clermont Auvergne.

"We are fifth in the table but somebody is going to drop points somewhere so we need to make sure we capitalise on that," argued the Ireland captain.
