Re: PADDY JACKSON

LI are good to watch going forward but their defence is non existent at times. They've conceded over 20pts a game on average but sure they have an ex international defence coach [emoji15] in place so it will come good.

Re: Rainbow Cup

I wonder if the drop outs will change how teams attack and defend from 5-10m out. It will be interesting to see if the defending team try to hold a player up hoping they will be driven over the line or even pull them over the line themselves while getting under the ball.

Re: Marcell Coetzee

Amazing though, how Leinster can bring a Super Rugby multiple title winning tighthead to compete with Ireland 1st and 2nd choice. Yet Ulster couldn't keep Pienaar because of Shanahan. If shanahan was playing for ireland we probably would have been allowed to keep him, that's their logic. Sent from ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

How on earth do they decide the draw for this? Leinster get Ulster and Munster at home and Ulster are away to both. Also, all the Irish sides are handicapped in this format by having to play against serious opposition compared to say, Edinburgh, Scarlets etc who all will be confident of coming thro...

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

We are the team tigers didn't want to draw but they are taking comfort of it being a home game. We should embrace the favourites tag, see it as a stepping stone, after all this team has a higher ceiling than the challenge Cup in the next few years.

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

Would have liked a home draw but we can go to Welford and win. Need Henderson back and our props in good shape.

Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

Any preference for the semi? Pubs will be open in England and grounds at 25% capacity afaik Suspect though that tickets will only be available to home fans, which is a pity. If so, it brings us back to home advantage meaning something again, even if not quite at the same levels as a full stadium So...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The Pro 14 need to think outside the box here. Maybe we could play them online at darts or chess? As things stand, we’ve got two weekends off before the semis and then trips to Munster and Leinster before a possible final. Do the guys really need to be playing after that anyway? Even the money argu...

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

B burns deserves special praise tonight. Took a massive shot to the ribs and continued to take it to the line, resulting in stockdales try. He has his doubters but his commitment cannot be questioned. Well done Billy.

Montpellier away would be the worst draw. Would fancy anyone at home.

A fit Henderson. Two away wins deserves a home semi i reckon.

Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

An 8 like Harrison would look to be a better buy than Leo at the minute. He's ripping us apart. We are playing 3 sevens in the back row and it is showing in the carries, only marty seem to have any fire in him.

Re: Saints v Ulster QF Saturday 8pm KO BT Sport 2

We look lacklustre with zero gainline sucess from carries. We will need a red card and some composure to win this and the former is more likely than the latter.
