Re: Ulster v Dragons Sunday October 25th 3pm

A good breeze down the field ensured it was a game of halves . It is hard to play into the wind - a good wind behind you is good for about 17 points 2 try and a penalty . its because you have to run the ball out of defence --- kick and you give away possession --and one kick by the opposition and yo...

Re: 6N 2020

Well the 81st minute of a match is no time for heroic defence and a broken jaw with about 5 games to come -- not to sure how the Irfu made a 35m loss there must be some future debts etc accrued in there somewhere or expected loss of revenue from advertising etc as well crowd money. Don't read a grea...

Re: 6N 2020

Conway is a make do and has very limited experience at full back Henshaw was tried and found wanting and basically in my opinion a bit like Sexton "an injury waiting to happen' for the last couple of seasons never the same player after the second AB game when he got crocked .

Re: Return of Supporters

No sure what the previous post is meant to convey

But it is the UR position that this was based on medical advice not from "The Big House on the Hill" but those giving the advice are paid by them . He who pays the piper calls the tune ?

Re: 6N 2020

Actually surprised at PoM being dropped to the Bench despite the fact he has only been at 1/2 the pace for the last 3 years and playing by memory.

Re: 6N 2020

Unfortunately Lyttle is in some respects too little and not an automatic choice of Ulster the player who should be there and would have been there but is Baloucoune a much better prospect than Lyttle , For my money Keenan got the call because like Lamour if the sh-t hit the fan he can go to full bac...

Re: Ospreys Vs Ulster Sat 10th October 5.15pm Premier Sports

Somethings happen on a rugby pitch which are accidental and you have , as a player to accept that accidents will happen -- you don't or shouldn't milk it. Take the Alwyn hit on Madigan -- -- Madigan is well aware of the fact he is in Jones's path and deliberately so -- the hit is not accidental but ...

Re: Ospreys Vs Ulster Sat 10th October 5.15pm Premier Sports

B---sh-t you always tackle with the shoulder and push with shoulder provided the arm was an arms only tackle is a flap in the wind . it is the area of contact of the shoulder on the opponent which creates the offence and a failure to use the arms to hold . Personally I see little wrong with a no arm...

Re: Ospreys Vs Ulster Sat 10th October 5.15pm Premier Sports

Watch from 18:20 to 18:30 + on YouTube Hendersons arm makes contact first , and the shoulder comes up after and the Welsh player turns to the lines man . ( milking it) No 18 comes into the next breakdown from the side marginally after slant Jones hits Madigan high ( with body weight follow through )...

Re: Ospreys Vs Ulster Sat 10th October 5.15pm Premier Sports

Watched the red in slow Henderson’s intention was to push the player back into the scrum half his fore arm and shoulder made contact about the same time the shoulder starts about( high) chest high and comes up into a chin going backwards Henderson continues the push with hands and arms and when the ...

Re: Gusher has got a gong

While Fez may be one eyed, avoiding personal identification of those responsible for the follies of the night, -- he doesn't avoid identifying the mistakes and weaknesses. And the fact is he is there to provide the Ulster view point not an unbiased commentary of proceedings. The unfortunate thing a ...

We don't want too many 'patients" As for the game -- must have been putting the chinese on the plate at the time -- sat down to the computer to Henderson thanking the referee for his diligence after he watched the O's flying over the ruck all night with immunity. -- It could be a why me hearing .
