Lowry was meant to be back fit for inter pro games, but having not had a run out I assume he is still not fully fit.
He was back in training prior to those games and had a set back, no reports on what the expected date now is for him.

Re: Munster Game

Paddy Power (Other bookies are available) have Ulster 3 points favourites for this one which is basically the home advantage. They are seeing the 2 23s as hard to split/sitting on the fence. There isn't an awful lot in it on paper. Munster will be relying on set piece ball and especially on the lin...

Re: What are we feeding them?

And we haven't even any decent scrumhalves to show from our dessicated youngsters until perhaps this batch of McKee, and Doak.

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

To digress Tom Stewart is the guy I'm most excited about, we seem to always produce hookers. Stewart seems to be a real talent, with him and McBurney starting to show what he's about we look like we're well set up! What's weird though is this Saffer schoolboy hooker we're supposedly bringing in rea...

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

The O'Donnell one is a mystery, I thought that he at would have at least featured in the Celtic Cup. I trust in the academy system at the minute though, to be honest. They're getting it right for the most part with respect to selecting players. I've seen the Australia highlights, he'd slipped my mi...

Re: Ulster Squad 2019/20

They include Addison, Reidy and Nordi. Stockdale will also be out of contract but will get an IRFU one. McGrath's IRFU contract will expire so we'll have to cough up to keep him. I'll have all five, please. Well it’s a big squad and he hasn’t been here very long. Andrew and Ross may be coming to th...

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

What the devil are you sniffing? Agreed that Gilroy currently is way down there, but Lyttle is arguably our form winger prior to his injury. Stockdale is right down at the bottom with Faddes and Gilroy as well, just isn't at the races and is being picked on what he did last season rather than what ...

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

Gilroy looks like he needs some game time - he’s been out for a long while and a Euro game comeback, with a misfiring backline isn’t probably the easiest way back. I’d get RB on at 14 ideally - he has the pace to deal with itoye. LL for me at 15, JS on the left. To be honest, I think Gilroy is a be...

Re: Ulster v Clermont

It's a real shame Hume injured himself when he did as surely he'd be pushing McCloskey right now.

Re: Bath v Ulster

Unbelievable negativity from some of you on this board right now. Firstly, you continue to punish UR for things over which they had no control. Ryan Pienaar was kicked out by Nucifora, not by Ulster. It was Ulster, on the other hand, who signed John Cooney and he has proven to be a very good replac...

Re: Munster v Ulster Sat 5:15pm

Not one Ulster born player in the forwards. I couldn’t name a potential Ulster born pack that could stand a chance in a professional game. But yes at least one would be a nod. The system can produce a decent backline, so much so the FIRFU thought we had too big for our boots and got rid of 2, but r...

Re: Ulster v Zebre MoTM

Shanahan ain't much like Marshall, hardly has a decent break on him at all, much better support lines though of course is very good at reading where the ball is going.

Re: Celtic Cup 2019/20

Graham Curtis, Zack McCall and Marcus Rea look good prospects Love to see some of these lads play in the top level od AIL rugby. 1A is a serious league now. Hope that Hinch can stay up and consolidate. It is good for Ulster to have a team at this level, the Dublin teams, Cork and Limerick dominate....

Re: Celtic Cup 2019/20

Rea's a funny one, has these games but has never consistently impressed me to think that he's a top prospect. Think his brother's still the pick of the two.
