Jonny Bell told the media after the 32-14 victory over Bristol on Friday evening that he was proud of the way his players have responded to difficult times.
David Humphreys was announced as the next Director of Rugby at Gloucester Rugby in June 2014.
Belfast born, he started his playing career at his home province of Ulster, enjoyed a spell in the Premiership with London Irish before returning to Ulster ahead of the 1998-9 season.
That season saw him play a pivotal role in the Irish province lifting the Heineken Cup, defeating Colomiers in the final at Lansdowne Road.
Capped 72 times for his country, scoring 560 points, Humphreys spent the rest of his playing career with Ulster before retiring in 2008 and taking on the role of Director of Rugby at Ravenhill.
A qualified solicitor, his time at Ulster saw him oversee the province establish itself as one of the true giants of the European rugby scene, regularly reaching the knock out stages of the Heineken Cup in the last few years, losing out in the final in 2012.
