The Blues shook Leinster Lions and Lansdowne Road to their foundations as they came back from 14 points down to draw level throughout a pulsating second half, before losing to an 80th minute penalty goal.
Afterwards Heineken man-of-the-match Martyn Williams admitted his team were disappointed but added,
"We are slowly getting there as a team, all we need is a bit of patience. We are definitely progressing - what we must learn to do is win these games we are losing by one late score."
