Re: Ulster v Sharks Friday May 20th 7:35pm BBC2NI / TG4 / Premier Sports 1 / URC TV / Super Sport

What’s the ulster team going to be? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Very similar 23 to the Edinburgh game, except Tom O'Toole at 3 after his ban with Milasinovich at 18. Moore and Hume at centre with Marshall on the bench if McCloskey doesn't make it. Mccloskey starts Sent from my iPhone using T...

Re: Any word on the Academy?

My Ennis based spies claim he is an excellent addition, theyre a bit miffed and are unsure how he has fallen down the pecking order Better 15 than 10. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Just like Mikey? :stir: Victim of being talented in multi positions. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Milasinovich

He's coming from a very low base I admit. No reason why his skills set and rugby nous and can't be improve upon. Not many 20 stone tight heads around and what more do we expect from a 3rd choice other than holding up a scrum and doing the basics. Hide him somewhere on pitch so he doesn’t get near t...

Re: Milasinovich

Is big G finally starting to show rhe promise that Dan saw in him? I've been pleasantly surprised in how well he's done the last couple of games against strong scrummaging teams. Got through an hour on sat night on a fast pitch and made some decent carries. Now let’s not get carried away. Scrum has...

Re: Contract Situation

Can’t be bothered to look but have they played him across the backrow? Need to find a position for him and stick with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Also can't be bothered to look but have a vague memory of him at 6 perhaps once. Whilst DV coming in might not have helped McCann, its not lik...

Re: Contract Situation

Reid has been playing fairly regularly for banbridge.. McCann apparently wasn't taken to South Africa and told to go and play AIL and work on his carrying. Allegedly has has little interest in doing so.... which would suggest he believes his own hype which hasn't really come to fruition. Duane comi...

Re: Contract Situation

is our "set of backs the envy of most, if not every side in Europe"?...they're decent, maybe even very good, mostly internationals, but the envy of Europe? two or three would probably get very decent contracts in Europe...more than they earn at Ulster I would bet if waiting for injuries i...

Contract Situation

I remember the Japan match ...thats the one he played Mike Lowry at fullback Think your right. Called into the squad as injury replacement having not been selected initially to tour by Noel. If you have aspirations Noel isn’t your man. I’m happy to support Dan until contract up then make a decision...

Was Dan a head coach before Ulster? I didn't say Dan was "Brad Pitt"...in fact I think he has been a steadying influence at Ulster ...just don't think he's the man to take us to the next level...the level where we win something? mcnamara would my choice...good man manager...good at gettin...

Re: Ulster v Munster Friday April 22 7:35pm KO BBC2NI / RTE2 / Premier Sports 2 / URC TV / Super Sport

There is a major difference in the school system north and south. NI the schools are publicly funded in the main but crucially a pupil can apply to any school they wish. In ROI it goes by postcode. You can't apply to the public funded school out of your area. Thus in areas with good schools the hou...

Ulster v Munster Friday April 22 7:35pm KO BBC2NI / RTE2 / Premier Sports 2 / URC TV / Super Sport

there is a certain exaggeration of the differences between schools rugby in Ulster and Leinster. There are no more than 8 private schools in Leinster who fall into the elite almost pro level. The other 100 and something schools play rugby for fun and without any expectation of senior cup glory. Of ...
