Interesting to hear that Dan would do things differently given the chance of playing the Glasgow game again.

There’s still a slim chance that we can put things right in Edinburgh but, currently, squad management over the block of three games over Christmas and again now look like costing us a play off spot.

I was advocating resting up most of the players who played against leinster. It would have preserved team confidence for the Edinburgh game and allowed for a full prep for this week. . Now we are on the back foot, I hope they have enough in the tank for this key game. I still think we can do it but would be more confident if we hadn't had flogged them unnecessarily last weekend.

You weren’t the only one.

Let’s hope you’re not ‘miserables’ come Friday night.

The lack of almost any spark at Scotstoun worries me greatly. Save for the early try, it was truly grim. There was a brief moment of light relief when a little fella with learning difficulties sat behind us shouted “I like your housecoats” when Cave et al warmed up behind the posts during the first half.

Edinburgh managed their game at Scarlets superbly and it will take a monumental effort to beat them.

I cannot find any free stream for tonight's game and even radio ulster is only AM/FM. So if anyone can provide a link it would be greatly appreciated. Premier sport seems to be UK only and ids VPNs.
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Dragons beat Scarlets 34-32. Real possibility the Scarlets will miss out on Heineken cup now.
