Edinburgh Rugby prop Geoff Cross believes there will be opportunities to score against Ulster this weekend if the Scots challenge their strengths.
Scotland internationalist Cross, who forms a formidable Edinburgh front row alongside Ross Ford and Allan Jacobsen, said the showdown Heineken Cup semi final in Dublin is the biggest game in the professional era of Scottish rugby.
Ulster have the upper hand in two meetings between the teams this term, but Cross thinks the capital men will have learned from their disappointments in the RaboDirect Pro 12 league.
Cross said: “This is the first time a Scottish team has reached the semi final of the Heineken cup and it s a chance for us to progress to the final.
“I’d say it’s the biggest game for Scottish professional rugby ever.
“The way that we’ve played against them in the past has allowed Ulster to play to their strengths. Ulster are a momentum based team and they’ve got an excellent kicking game.
“If you can meet those strengths, challenge them and beat them then there are opportunities there to make space, score against them and win.”
