The injury will also mean that Payne will miss Ulster's crucial back-to-back Champions Cup clashes against Clermont Auvergne as well the meetings with Exeter and Bordeaux

Cian Tracey - Irish Independent

It is reasonable to assume that Heaslip, who will be 33 in a fortnight, wanted to get the November Test series out of the way before turning his thoughts to contractual matters.

John O'Sullivan - Irish Times

The Pacific islanders had a woman in the sin-bin but held a 17 -12 advantage in the closing minutes, before Aoife Doyle crossed the try-line to level the match late.

Sean Farrell -

The Warriors have hardly lived up to their name on their last two outings, conceding seven tries and managing just one in reply.

Iain Morrison - The Scotsman

Hopefully injecting a few of the Irish internationals will be enough to see off the Dragons, who have won the last 3 out 4 matches with us. This has to stop NOW!
