Rhy Ruddock spoke to the media ahead of this Sunday’s Heineken Cup game away to Castres Olympique about the upcoming Heineken Cup double-header, his Six Nations ambitions and his thoughts on his performance so far this season.

“I’ve been delighted to be involved in some of the bigger games, and I suppose put a run of form together, “said the Leinster back row. “I’ve been playing week on week, so I’m happy with the way [the season] is going.”

Looking ahead to this weekend’s game, Ruddock believes both teams will be going all out to win on what will be a crucial Heineken Cup weekend: “If we win this game [against Castres] we’re more than in the hunt, so it’s a must-win for both teams. It makes for a really good battle on the weekend.”
