With the new season just around the corner things are looking good for Ulster rugby.
Along with several new players, they've got a new coach, a new kit, a new sponsor and of course a new level of expectations after reaching the Heineken Cup final last season.
Stephen Ferris said: "You can't sit back and say oh we had a good season last year.
"It is obviously in the back of your mind but that has been and gone and we can look to the future and keep on one step further and obviously we came 6th in the league overall last year and that is not good enough for the team that we had.
"We feel that this year we need to go out there and win every game and come the end of the season we need to be well into both competitions."
Tommy Bowe returns to Ulster after four years away with the Ospreys, during that time he won two Celtic Leagues - but the Welsh side struggled in Europe.
Bowe said: "To see the guys going so well in the Heineken cup, especially last year, I was so jealous watching on the final and so disappointed for them with the end result but hopefully come back here we can try and replicate that and maybe try and go on one step further.
"In the league I think we have talked about consistency within a team.
"They were pulling out absolutely enormous performances against the top teams in Europe and then maybe dropping at the bottom week so it is about trying to get that squad performance and the consistency back here.
"Hopefully me coming back here, likes of Roger, O'Connor and the other new guys coming in we can add whatever we can to it."
Rory Best returned to training on Monday after a long season with Ulster and Ireland.
It was arguably his best season to date - but he is now trying to raise the bar for his home game ahead of the new year.
He explained: "I think you have to, as a professional rugby player you try to do every single time, you take the field or you start a new season there is always parts of your game to improve on.
"I have got my little list in my head that I want to get better at and it will be up to me to put pressure on myself to make sure that I do that and again the key for me is to make sure that I enjoy it and with the bunch of players that we have at the minute I do not see why we shouldn't enjoy this season."
