No no no no no, it was as the PRO12 we were going to win last year, but we've worked really hard to eradicate silly mistakes and we have a plan in place. We're in a really strong position and we have a great squad of guys here who all want to win it for Ulster and for our loyal supporters.

Hartpury won all 30 games in National League 1 last year - glad Stortford won't have to play them!

Are Cornish Pirates from Wales ? Harpury are a Gloucester feeder club
