Ulster back rower Sean Reidy has hailed the squad mentality of his side following their Guinness Pro14 victory over Munster.

Tries from Rob Herring, Robert Baloucoune and Dave Shanahan pushed the home side over the line to keep their winning momentum going following back-to-back wins over Scarlets in the Heineken Champions Cup earlier this month.

They also scored some revenge against Munster after they shipped a heavy 64-7 defeat at Thomond Park in the Pro14 earlier this year.

Reidy however, says that their winning performances are rooted in the hard work of their teammates in the wider squad.

"The inter-pros are always big games so we're really happy. It's been really good, I think it comes down to the squad as a whole," he told RTÉ Sport. 

"The 23 guys that aren't on the paddock are working just as hard as the guys that are and I think it's creating a really good culture for the team.

"It comes down to everyone working hard for each other, the coaches have put in a lot of work and the guys that aren't in the 23, the wider squad are putting in some bloody hard work which is great to see as well and I think it's really paying off."

Ulster suffered an early set back in Friday night's victory when Baloucoune was sent to the sin bin following a tackle on Darren Sweetnam. However, he might have been considered fortunate to avoid a red card for the aerial challenge.

Despite the numerical difference for some of that half, Ulster responded well and were rewarded with a Herring try after the half-hour mark to give them some breathing space heading into the interval.

Ulster celebrate Rob Herring's try.

They also managed to prevent Munster from crossing over for any tries throughout the tie, but Reidy admits that there were errors in their play that allowed their opponents to collect a losing bonus point.

"It's not ideal but it is what it is," admitted Reidy.

"Those little things you practise during the week so it's good we were able to get a few points at the end of that half and going into the second half with a little bit of confidence. 

"We played some ok rugby and felt we could have had a few more tries under our belt and were a bit unlucky.

"There were a few dropped balls here and there and fair play to Munster, they really came out and showed their real physicality.

"At the end of the day we're happy with the four points at this time of year and we've just got to keep backing it up week on week."

Connacht await Ulster in their next inter-pro tie over the Christmas period and will be quickly followed by a crunch tie against Leinster at the start of 2019.

"Down to Galway next week and that'll be another huge game and we know what they're like at home," says Reidy.

"We're looking to put in a big performance."
