Leinster scrum-half Eoin Reddan insists his side are desperate to win the PRO12 title this season, and said they will show it against Ulster this weekend.
Reddan and his team-mates saw their European crown slip a little further on last weekend and their home defeat to Clermont means they face an uphill struggle to advance from their Heineken Cup pool.
Regardless however, Reddan is adamant that the PRO12 is high on Leinster's agenda this season, having lost out to the Ospreys in the final last term.
"PRO12 games are massive for individuals in terms of getting selected for those bigger games," Reddan told the Irish Independent.
"We have a job to do this week. That job isn't to win, really, it is to do certain things that are asked of us, and those standards usually lead to victory.
"We have a massive responsibility, the guys who take to the pitch this week, to be very accurate in everything we do and, if the result comes with that, then great.
"But it's about getting the performance right and working on the specific things that we need to improve on.
"Even if we had won at the weekend, it is still a massive goal of ours to win the Rabo.
"Maybe the fact we lost at the weekend puts a bit more pressure on us to perform this weekend, but even had we won last weekend this would still be a very important game for us."
