"If you don't have that character and attitude to hang in there and battle through the tough times, you won't come out the right end.
"We have done that a few times this year, and shown there is a bit of character there. That's a good benchmark to build a good team from."
Next up for Ulster in the competition is a trip to Northampton Saints on December 7.
