Following the win against Cardiff Blues last week, we spoke to Luke Marshall about his thoughts on the game, his community engagement efforts and the challenge ahead against Zebre.
Last Friday, Ulster defeated Cardiff Blues by 23-14 and Marshall was one of his side’s two try-scorers. Although they got 4 points from the game, he knows this squad is capable of more and discipline needs to improve.
“It was obviously good to get another win, but we were a bit below the standard we set for ourselves,” he said. “We started off really well but took the foot off the gas and our ill-discipline didn’t help. We gave away a lot of penalties and let Cardiff back into the game.
“They’re a good team and they took advantage of that. But it was still a win against a good quality side, and we can’t be too unhappy with that.”
The 28-year-old had to switch positions to inside centre in the second minute of the game when James Hume got injured and Matt Faddes came on to join him in midfield. While it added to the pressure of his game, he was able to draw on previous experience to deal with the switch.
