Don't know it is blocked on RTE via Sky SD and HD, but the youtube stream is pretty good. Game is not amazing mind.

I'm guessing, Rte don't have the license to broadcast it the UK. The union makes no practical sense. It's the same when you pop over the border, your mobile phone becomes useless.
Maybe, will the senior game be available or just stick with BBC?

Ryle Nugent is worth avoiding.

BBC coverage is not brilliant but is light years better than ITV!

Thanks for the tip-off.

Sneaky win. Second best but a MOTM performance from McPhillips was the difference. Getting the MOTM from a "slightly" partisan commentary team shows how good he was. Only real error was 1 kick out on the full. Kicking, and especially his clearance kicking was superb. Also was a nusance in defence.

Set piece was shocking. Line out throws wayward and scrum just about held up when it mattered but gave away a lot of pens. Both packs in the loose were evenly matched.

Stewart didn't have a great game but the sub scrum-half certainly wasn't better.

Ground out a win.
Mcphilips kicks well, runs up his own backside and doesn't pass the ball.

Stewart was poor, seems to want to control the game but not sure having the forwards going round the corner phase after phase after phase if great game management. Passing was ok in places and box kicking wasn't great.

Cooper scrummaging doesn't look up to it. Around the park defensively I thought he was effective.

Rea is absolutely huge, came on the last 10mins but didn't really get an opportunity to do anything.

I thought we were lucky enough, we struggled defensively at times but did enough to keep the Scots out. McPhillips was excellent and his boot is an absolute weapon. I thought Stewart was good too. He controlled the game well at times. On 65 minutes we drove up about 60 metres with Stewart picking out non-static runners. Fairly basic concept but unthinkable for p to fathom.

Is there a single poster who believes Stewart is a better prospect than O'Donnell? Maybe Ciaran Campbell's personal spat aside, nobody does.

Then again I hate young people and what would I know?.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

I mean McPhillips has an excellent boot but his all round game leaves a lot to be desired.

To be fair, I felt the game plan from Ireland was very negative. If Stewart is following a game plan then he did alright.

If RO'D is picked for Ireland u19s AGAIN having gone unnoticed/unappreciated by Ulster this year AGAIN then questions definitely need to be asked of the staff in underage set up.

I have wondered if the game plan for all the Ireland underage teams is the same. Haven't seen any width in a single game I have watched. All broken field running with the likes of ringrose,stockdale,macken to name a few. Always a solid maul mind you.

I wouldn't say so, though Stewart does have the makings of a pro player and still is a better prospect than any of our scrumhalves over the last however long. Saw O'Donnell earlier today and though it was against not a great Ballyclare team he was still excellent, dependent on how he develops physically he has the makings of a possible international.

True, though I'd say part of O'Donnell's upside is his ability to break and get tries, and we'll see whether he can translate it to when he's up against much bigger lads.

I have wondered several times in the past about such things, players being picked for Ireland squads and sides yet don't feature at Ulster level, very strange

Perhaps there is a touch of maverick in his game and thinks on the pitch rather than follows plans, that would be frowned upon at a higher level :roll:
