Re: Pro 14 Final vs Leinster, Sept 12th.

We have all accepted Leinster are a machine and there is no doubt something odd about their financial structure and the support they get from IRFU for players and support staff which does not translate to Ulster Rugby. I also agree we are not as good as we thought we were but not as bad as some are ...

Re: Edinburgh vs ULSTER MOTM

MC man of the match for me but thought Rea was throwing himself about a bit more and excelled in the lineouts.

Re: Semi Final Edinburgh v Ulster Sat Sep 5 7:35pm

Not unusual for me to have a gurn about referees particularly Irish referees but thought Murphy was good last night,consistent and balanced. If I'm correct the penalty at the finish was the first kick at goal apart from conversions all night,just be a record.

Re: Ospreys v Ulster Sat Feb 15

We have persisted with Shannahan for far to long. The gap between him and Cooney is vast as is the gap between him and any other "reserve " 9 in Ireland. The team not only suffers but also has to change structure considerably to compensate for his deficiencies particularly when we are on the back fo...

Re: ULSTER MOTM vs Connacht

Baloucoune for me is also a natural defender and rarely misses a tackle.With pace to burn he is one for the present never mind the the future

Re: In Defence of Schmidt, Ireland's RWC and where to now?

A very disappointing World Cup but why the surprise considering the results from the 6 nations and the autumn internationals when it was already apparent the team was on the on the wane and the tactics fully understood by the opposition. Joe was getting very conservative with no plan b. Stick to the...

Re: Ulster Vs Benetton Fri 25th @ 7.35pm Live Freesports

Friday night's debacle has confirmed unless we get a strong axis and back up at 9 and 10 we are wasting our time. Shannahan just doesn't cut it. He is not a threat anywhere in the pitch which makes him predictable and with a weak out half it puts pressure on the centers unless of course you aimlessl...

Re: Leicester away

Until Cooney came in Murphy was on my mind the booooom we got a game.

Re: MOTM Ulster vs Racing 92

Marcel for me with great support from the back row and Rory playing like a flanker.
The other big positive is Baloucoune with well taken try and terrific defence.

Re: New CEO

I guess as he has an excellent record in dishing out rubbish he should at least have some knowledge of collecting it.
Does this now qualify him as a binman!!!!!!

Re: Munster V Ulster Sat 29th Sept 7:15

Hope Cave plays. Does anyone agree with me and think he is a yard or more faster than he has ever been. I know its early day but for me he is like a new player this season and long may it continue.
