Re: Ulster v Benetton Friday October 2nd 8:15pm KO

I liked David O’Connor’s attitude when he came on you could see the family trait, I am hoping that he will be one of those late developers. Ageed! Always seems keen and hungry. Has some aggression as well! Always wonder could he do a job at Blindside. If he developed like Alan did! We’d be very luc...

I thought that Marty Moore showed how good he can be so I award him my man of the match.
Have to agree, his work rate last night was up there!

Night and day from the Connacht game.

Re: Oh no.....

Faddes will come good I do believe, though it can’t be easy with injuries and constantly playing different positions and not getting much continuity.

Re: Any word on the Academy?

Faddes hasn't performed at the top level --- an A game is not quite the same -- in many ways -- Defences are not as well organised-- and experience may be lacking. Think Faddes has definitely been below par, but will come good! Has he even played 2 games in a row in the same position? As pointed ou...

Re: Squad Depth 2020/21

Richarst84 much appreciation for effort put into your thread/post. Realistically Ulster need to become sustainable, even more now with COVID/financial impact. Quite few seniors needing resigned in 2021 with a few there I reckon will be let go. Age profile is young and areas of concern: Loosehead, 2n...

Re: Toulouse v Ulster Heineken QF

A few holes have been plugged. TOT is now developing into a viable set piece TH, AM adds an option at 9. Some however are still there and glaringly obvious 6, and Lock. Blindside - O’Connor Jnr given a shot? Would also like to see McCann/Allison start to get slowly get integrated into the backrow. ...

I see John McKee officially inducted into the d4 academy proper today. Hopefully not one that got away.
Thought he played very well in U20s 6 Nations, very good game against England.

Shame we could do with a traditional 7, he looked very good last year.

Re: TRANSFER RUMOURS!!

According to Jonathan Bradley, Dave O’Connor is joining next season. IIRC this was rumoured last (?) season when he was released from the Leinster academy. I’ve never seen him play, I think he was quite well regarded at Leinster, his problem was that at 6’4” he was an inch or two too short for seco...
