A few more bruises were picked up in the Magners League play-off semi-final defeat of Irish rivals Ulster while opponents Northampton were also given a thorough work over in their Aviva Premiership semi-final defeat to rivals Leicester.

“They had a tough game at the weekend. It was not an easy one for them and I am sure they are a little bit bruised and battered from it just like we were after Friday's match.”
