Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

This will be a real test. No Henderson is a big blow and we look a bit light up front without him and Coetezee. Always a bit worried when no changes are made from a previous game. Especially when its only been a 6 day turn around. Would have maybe freshened up the front row. Anyhow game on. If we ke...

Re: PADDY JACKSON

Can anyone tell me is the woman's game blighted by over-officiating? The way this is heading we'll be playing a mixed tag 6 Nations in a couple of years time.

Re: Quins game in the bic biro

I watched Quins last week and didn't give Ulster much of a chance But then Quins change 14 players. Now if we don't win this one questions must be asked. Only danger is that we haven't had a game in a while and are usually crap after a break. With Henderson missing we may be a bit light up front but...

Re: PADDY JACKSON

This is getting out of hand. Watching the red card at the time I actually thought the Cardiff player led with his head. Then the yellow card was an absolute joke. The Cardiff player immediately joined the defensive line and was not injured. They're trying to turn rugby into a on contact sort. Absolu...

Re: SIX NATIONS 2021

Well thankfully that crap is over. Some of the media calling it the best 6Nations ever!? Not for me. There were moments of brilliance but too often teams retreated into safety first rugby and the amount of errors by every team was very high. Most games, teams lost the match rather than teams winning...

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

Can't argue with that. But I'm not sure I can be bothered about another blood and guts narrow defeat. It would be nice to win a trophy again at some stage.

Re: Dragons v Ulster Sat 13th March 7:35pm KO

Only saw the highlights on the garlic channel. Lowry looked good in defence but his touch finding is fairly short. Stockdale looked good in returning the kicks. Should be on the bench at least this afternoon but seems out of favour. Getting an injury seems to go against you? Moore took his chances w...

Re: SIX NATIONS 2021

France were great in the first half. Unfortunately they seemed to change tactics in the second half and kicked away most of the possession they had. it was like they went from trying to win the game in the first half to just trying not to lose it in the second. Pains me to say but credit to England ...

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

On the tap and go penalty Leinster did not invent it. They may be the first to use it in our league but Exeter have been doing it for years. On Rum's continual highlighting of the cheating tactics used by Leinster - give over man! Every team cheats as much as they can get away with. Leinster seem to...

Re: Welcome to Ulster Leone Nakarawa

Won't improve our pack. We need two or three grunts with a bit of hardness about hem. Not an offloading show pony. I struggle to see any 'go forward' next year. Harsh but I've just watch Leinster seconds dominate us up front and bully us of four own patch.
