Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

Pity Baggy has left us. I would love to see his reaction to "Shinnerboots" on the Ulster squad.

Re: Ulster v Connacht Fri Dec 27th 7:35pm

The Ulster defence in that game was fantastic. They have taken it to a new level this year. Luke Marshall does not get anything like enough credit for the work he gets through both in defence and attack. I see him as Ulster's midfield rock now. He's still pretty mobile for a centre who's built like ...

Re: Belfast Tele poll

I think the hardest selections are in the centre Marshall, McCloskey, Olding, Cave and Payne ( Paddy Wallace unfortunately lacks the defensive quality to qualify ) Full back Terblanche and Payne are neck and neck Wings Trimble Bowe and Stockadale are the front runners by a mile No !!!!! Towards the...

Re: Ulster Vs Harlequins Sat 7th Dec @ 15.15 BT Sport

Great rugby by Ulster. Cooney, Ludik, Marshall, Burns all playing well I like Ludik, who always gives 100%. But he really should have scored a try when he was in the clear and caught from behind by Danny Care. No substitute for real pace at this level, and most top wings would have nailed it. Hope ...

Re: Japan RWC

Both wingers were poor. Both made big mistakes and both were shown up defensively. Feel sorry for Rory Best. Tis a tough end for a great player. I thought that Earls was OK and not bad defensively. I still rate him as Ireland's most dangerous back. Sadly, Ireland does not have the centres capable o...

Re: Edinburgh vs Ulster

Awesome [emoji119] But leaves me confused, I’m not sure if we’re pretty rubbish or brilliant! We seem to alternate game about.. Edinburgh were fully loaded, and we absolutely took them apart - impressed that we kept coming up with big plays any time the momentum looked like stalling - chargedowns, ...

Re: Edinburgh vs Ulster

What a finish from Robbie B Brilliant. Electric pace and great step. Left the defence for dead. Crucial that Ulster keep up the pressure and don't let Edinburgh back into this. Herring is having a grand run of games. He could well make the RWC squad on this form. He's looking a better all round hoo...

Re: Glasgow Vs Ulster Fri 5th April @ 7.35pm Premier Sports

The Ulster lineout is shoite. If we can't win our own ball we won't win the match. Glasgow looking well up for this but their tries have been quite soft.

Re: Mexico Vs Ulster KO 5.45pm BT Sport 3

Jacob Stockdale = Robbie Diack Discuss Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk Too hard on Jacob. Don't understand why he didn't just dive but he didn't. He will be totally gutted as will Cooney for missing that easy conversion. I fully expected a serious humping by Leinster today, but the Ulster team ...

Re: Dragons Away

Great hard nosed game by the Ulster pack who finally look somewhat organized. Billy Burns continues to look nothing special - he's had a long time to show his stuff. Eric O'Sullivan and Balocoune look likely future Ireland internationals. Timoney now looks at least as good as J.Murphy as an all-purp...

Re: Ulster v Zebre Sat 23rd Feb 7:35pm KO Free Sports

The poor old Zebre reserves were poor opposition.
In Balacoune and Lyttle, Ulster have a couple of wings with real pace, and pretty good footballing/defensive skills too.

Re: Ospreys vs Ulster

I think the days of Cave providing much creativity are probably over. We picked a pretty limited back three , more out of necessity than choice, but can be reasonably pleased with the set piece, handling, discipline and defensive structure. Job done. I'd give full marks to Ludik. This guy always gi...

Re: Six Nations 18/19

Brutal looking game no real loser there, England just seem to have the edge this week. Disagree. Ireland were very much the loser. The Nigels were all over them and bullied them off the park. Several Ireland big names did not show up today. This is a very settled and experienced Ireland team. You w...
