Fly Half Billy Burns states Ulster are not only travelling to Dublin to”make up the numbers” in Saturday’s Champions Cup Quarter Final contrary to Leinster.
Ulster move in the link against the winners at the Aviva Stadium as underdogs but Burns claims that they”have a great plan set up” to cause an upset.
“This isn’t our big day outside. It’s really a stepping stone to where we want to become.
“We want to be playing finals and winning decorations. The boys are prepared to return there and implement our plan”
The former Gloucester number 10 included:”It is a enormous match for us, since it is for them. The business end of the Champions Cup is at which you wish to be playing.
“We are hugely excited about going there and giving it a really great crack this weekend.

- Henderson remains Ulster doubt for Leinster match
Ulster progressed to the previous eight years with five wins out of six matches from a pool that comprised Racing 9-2, Scarlets and Leicester Tigers, and also are competing at a quarter final for the firsttime since 2014.
“I really don’t think lots of people gave us a better prospect of becoming away from our group – we now have put in some pretty impressive displays this season against some tough opposition and we understand this match will take our very best performance yet for sure,” said Burns.
“It is going to take a full 80-minute performance against these guys but we have been working towards a plan to overcome them and also make the semi final.
