Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

Ed Burne --joke not a fair summation, but a true reflection of the lobe sided selection process and its consequences . Since Byrne is a leinster player and over half the pack are leinster or multi-capped players from Munster the lad already knows the calls and manner in which the roles are allotted ...

Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

Given Herring and Henderson are injured to some extent the Ulster involvement is understated and I'am not that sure Dillane is that much better than Treadwell both add bulk to the set piece and little else besides. Yesterdays defeat was basically down to the inability to control the game ,dire kicki...

Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

Back line as expected ( except for Earls --a covid replacement )

Can't believe Healy on the bench with Beirne in the second row the scrum will be in trouble

Defeat number two - think a margin and double it

Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

Result as expected You can’t kick long against AB teams they run the ball back at pace and unlike the NH the player doesn’t run into the cover to recycle — they run for the gap and space — their team mates know this and head for the space to take the pass with the passer then running the support lin...

Re: Ireland ? in New Zealand

I take it that was the game when a flyweight was matched against a light heavy in the centre whose motto was "if I can't run round them I 'll run over them.'

Ireland ? in New Zealand

Nobody here seems interested I wonder Why? Anyway if it is a 5 -0 thumping I for one won't be surprised . Looking at the squad you could say it contains 5 out- halfs Sexton," a past his sell-by" an Injury waiting to happen, Carberry likewise, Byrne (h) like Carberry his game resembles a pa...

Re: Stuart McCloskey

Its because there are sp many in South Africa they are not individually conspicuous. Treadwell is conspicuous -- just watch a game on the television and consider how often you can identify Treadwell compared to Ryan or VdF to another back row forward ( due to his red scrum cap) VdF avoids giving pen...

Re: Stuart McCloskey

Every side has key players previously it was RoG and BoD latterly it has been Sexton --Cooney as always been a threat due to place kicking and to lesser degree his ability to switch to out half . And the fact that IRFU f--ked up on Jackson now bites them because none of the alternatives are up to In...

Re: Stuart McCloskey

Treadwell has bulk his set piece isn't bad line out and scrum his problem is his blond hair which means he is conspicuous in the loose and therefore identifiable Henderson suffers to a lesser degree when playing head up Both players are better than their penalty count others are possibly more guilty...

Re: What annoys people????

This week is mens health week

A little reminder to those over 45 --if you haven't had a PSA and a DRE --- get one and if your last was 3 years ago have another.

Better safe than sorry

Re: Season highlights

Turko Really Mcilroy has all the skills great defender but know what he doesn't do what a go wing should score frequently and if you observe in another thread Ulster's problem has been the inability to put sufficient points on the board and finding they are being outscored in the second half of many...
