Marshall rejects Ferris' damning Ulster criticism
- From the section Rugby Union
Luke Marshall has rejected a claim from former team-mate Stephen Ferris that Ulster lacked heart in last weekend's Pro12 Irish derby defeat by Leinster.
Ulster and Ireland centre Marshall said that the comments had been "hurtful and demoralising" but insisted the squad would use them as motivation for their upcoming games including Friday's crucial Pro12 contest against the Scarlets in Wales.
