Cape Town - Ulster head coach Les Kiss has praised the Springbok contingent of Jean Deysel and Marcell Coetzee following their 42-19 PRO14 thrashing of the Cheetahs.
The Springbok duo were in fine form against their compatriots and were singled out for special praise by Kiss.
Deysel was making his Ulster debut and Coetzee only his fifth start for the club after an injury-plagued 2016/2017 which saw him undergo a pair of knee surgeries.
And Kiss has specifically referred to the added physicality the pair brought to the side since their introduction.
"It certainly helps," Kiss told the Belfast Telegraph.
"Particularly there was a really good moment when Marcell made a big carry and he was backed up by a good hit up by Jean.
"Those double carries can make a big difference. It gives you a chance to expose space and that power, it certainly helps.
"It can make a difference. You have to work to the space and be clinical with that too and we did that at the right times. Not every time, but enough to push the score."
Deysel received the man-of-the-match accolade for his efforts but was quick to acknowledge the team effort.
"We are building on a team culture as well and I do think it went really well on the night," said the four-times capped Springbok.
