Mike Lowry and James Hume are Ireland stars in the making, predicts Rob Herring

Rob Herring wishes Mike Lowry and James Hume well in the coming weeks.

Ulster’s backline has been outstanding in the Champions Cup since December 1.
In the Champions Cup, Mike is averaging three or four stats every game, while James is coming of age.

“He’s always had that X element, but now he’s delivering week after week.”

“Both excellent lads, but people don’t see their work.

It shows their thinking and where they want to be. They’re definitely two of the hardest workers in the team.

They’ve had terrific Champions Cup performances and hopefully will get a chance to shine in the Six Nations.”

Herring recognises the importance of a quick start in the competition, especially with a trip to Paris following the Aviva Stadium opener against Wales.
“We just want to offer people a fantastic performance and a good entertainment,” he stated.

“It’s critical to start strong.”
Ulster must now prepare to face reigning champions Toulouse in the European last 16.

There’s not a lot you can do about getting the Top 14 superstars in the final pool shake-up, he said.

“We had a wonderful pool campaign, Toulouse had a few games cancelled.”
