Re: Ulster v Emirates Lions Friday October 15th 7:35pm KO

Looked like a broken ankle / lower leg or at least a dislocation. Would have been in the autumn international squad and will now miss out. Lad can't catch a break.

Re: United Rugby Championship

Just don't see how we are 21 points favourites against a team who nearly beat away from home a team we struggled to beat AT home? [emoji848]

Re: Ulster v Emirates Lions Friday October 15th 7:35pm KO

Reckon this will be the biggest test yet of the season. These guys have been living in each others pockets for weeks and this is their last game before going home. We always struggle against a bit physical team and our cutting edge so far has been poor. Will be a good watch to see how the younger gu...

I'd say marcel will be a good contact for him. Proof that u can come back from 2 serious injuries one after the other.

Re: United Rugby Championship

They obviously are adding a novelty factor to the pricing as so far it is not based on the quality of opposition.
Appreciate season tickets aren't for everyone but from a clubs pov they are the holy grail of ticket purchasing so expect people to be nudged in that direction.

Re: Munster 2021/22

Munster have been impressive, although the scarlets defensively have been shocking. Worry for syman hobbling off again.

Re: Munster 2021/22

Any help at this stage of the season is welcome. We will have much tougher games to come and any buffer we can build up now is to be grasped. After the lions game we have 10 in a row where the performances to date would not be good enough.

Re: Ulster v Benetton Friday Oct 8 7:35pm KO

Personally I would only want to see one of rea or mccann in the back row at any one time but until duane and jordi are available that may not be possible. It was the age old problem of ulster having to put out weak teams to save the front liners but resulted in nothing being learned by the inexperie...

5.30 on a Saturday is great (saracens QF I think). Time for good lubrication before and a few beers in town after.

Re: Ulster v Benetton Friday Oct 8 7:35pm KO

What are they doing in training? Ask the new fitness coach..... "We would hope we wouldn’t come up against anyone that would play at a higher intensity,” he says. “We are trying to come up with a game plan that exceeds the demands we’ve come against before. “It’s important that the players are prep...

Re: United Rugby Championship

Could be a lot of travel for the Boks sides in Rounds 6 & 7. Assuming Munster & Zebre do go to SA and Scarlets and Cardiff to Italy, then the Boks sides may have to fly between Italy and South Africa between the two rounds. Not ideal but still under 10 hour direct flights between SA and It, as far ...
