Leicester Tigers' Paul Burke pleased with bonus point

Leicester Tigers assistant coach Paul Burke is happy to have collected a point against Ulster on Friday.

Leicester Tigers assistant coach Paul Burke has said that he is pleased with his side's performance against Ulster in the Heineken Cup on Friday.

The visitors suffered a 22-16 defeat at Ravenhill but collected a bonus point.

"Any point at Ravenhill we're really pleased with, to come to Ravenhill it is a difficult [place] to play, previous years have proven if you don't win your away games you need to pick up a bonus and we did that," BBC Sport quotes him as saying.

"It is probably what we deserved out of the game after going nine points, the resolve and the character we showed to get ourselves back and for Owen [Williams] to kick that penalty to get us that bonus point was an outstanding effort from everyone."

Leicester will host Treviso in their next Pool 5 clash on October 18.
