Any word on the Academy?

Schools team destroyed by Connacht!! Not good. Was the team announced? Don’t even know which team is the schools team anymore? Is it the u18,u19 or u20s? Gone are the days when it was an honour to be selected for Ulster schools. Every Tom, Dick and Harry is a representative player now. Sent from my...

Re: Injury Update

I'd love to remember Addison as being good, but I can't remember that far back. Hard to remember any player apart from Luke being injured for so long He was outstanding. That’s not to say he won’t be when he’s fully back. Class skill set. Hits like a train. Elusive. Fast. Excellent under high ball....

While I think Mikey is absolutely quality, I think you forget how good Addison is.

Would love to see Addison back and Mike at 10 and sticking with it for 3-6months then make a judgement for all the naysayers.

Re: Injury Update

So Stockdale (remember him) and Baloucoune both fit and raring to go but Addison still not ready yet. A lesser player would have been let go by now surely? Has anyone heard any updates contrary to this and/or about Luke Marshall? Mentioned it in the URC fixture thread [emoji106] Sent from my iPhone...

Re: URC Fixtures 2022/23

According to information from the fans forum tonight, Vermeulen back in week 4 v Ospreys. Irish players back from week 3 v Leinster. My recollection is that Dan said we might see DV about then but Irish players only miss week 1! OK, so two different versions then. Time will tell. There was a questi...

Re: URC Fixtures 2022/23

What plonker decides it’s a good idea having interpros without the international players?

Talk about not considering the fans

This is nuts if true. He didn’t get his way at MCB if 9 is his favourite position.

Wonder what changed in a year that he isn’t playing 9 now at ulster.

I thought that spoke more about the Ulster set up than him.

He’s an outside back IMO.
