We will go no further with Burns at flyhalf.

Location: second barrier up, at the half-way line ... or is the third?

If Darren was only a temporary replacement for Luke, does that count as a cap? I doubt it, for some reason.

Is he therefore still 2 behind Trimbie, or does his brief cameo today get him to 228?

Answers on a postcard please?

Wasn’t great today but still a relative youngster. Pretty sure Carty is 26, took him to then to get to this point for example. With 2 more years development I’d say he will be more than useful. Very quick to see glass half empty on here...

I’m a bit one eyed but was the ref pretty shoite. Pretty sure they were offside a lot, it was a rip on McCloskey rather than a knock on in the build up to their first try etc...just think they got all the 50:50’s...

One eyed maybe but felt he kept them in that match

Shoulder to the face in a no arms tackle is only a penalty as well.

If it's a penalty, it's a card.

The only way it's not a card is if it's not a penalty.

11-3

HT

My money's on Ulster to win this.

Maybe even have a flutter on Marcell to score a try?

Thought of putting money on Brace being a clampit, but couldn't get odds on that.
