Re: Cricket season

As for Ollue Robinson - good debut on the pitch.

As for the other stuff - yes it was years ago and he was young but suspension right IMHO. Need to set an example.

Re: Cricket season

New Zealand had the better of the 1st test. Really good pace attack even without the spearhead Trent Boult.
Nothing in the spin dept though

Re: Marcell Coetzee

So, just in theory, if Marcell wanted to come back to Ulster, what would we say? My guess is we'd play his plane fare and put him and hus family up in the Culloden for his quarentine. Nope. He could still get called up with injuries. Will get a chance to play for the Bulls vs B&I Lions and even if ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

I’d imagine Baird will be in the 2nd row going forward, but like Henderson initially get gametime in BR too - Irfu don’t have as many options for the Ireland side in the 2nd row so Baird is likely earmarked there at the moment id say. I can see Henderson being a bit of a Simon shaw and carrying on ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

Ryan probably not at his absolute best but always manages incredible work rate. Baird is an unbelievable athlete. I would like to see him at 6 a bit more. To keep his athleticism and not bulk too much. Him, Doris and Penny would be an unbelievable backrow in the coming years for Leinster. They are ...

Re: Rainbow Cup

Leinster are on the beach enjoying their summer hols regardless of what the names on the team sheet say. Same old story against Leinster though. Ulster cannot breach the defence and take chances. Doak will be better for that run out in a tight game against good opposition. When did Ringrose last ass...

Re: Rainbow Cup

Which will happen first tonight.

Leinster turnover as Shanners delays taking the ball from the back of the ruck.

Re: Lions 2021

Cave always claims it he was taken out of context by the D4 meeja as he was having a pop at them. He phoned Joe to clear things up. It didn't change things. The one thing I never understood was why Joe took him to the world cup in 2015 and then didnt play him when the centres got injured. If he was...

Re: Rainbow Cup

The pack a couple of years earlier was arguably better. It had peak Afoa, a fit Ferris (he hardly played during the Anscombe reign) and Wannenburg. I'd take Ferris and Wannenburg in 2012 form over Wilson and Big Nock as a 6/8 combination. I don't remember Wilson being that good after he returned fro...

Re: Lions 2021

Sinckler didn’t suggest there was anything “unfair” in his non selection and had the good grace to wish those picked all the best.He has missed out on what for players remains the biggest accolade in terms of selection and what he described as the best experience of his life in 2017......minus the a...

Re: Injury Update

Disappointed for Marcus Rea if he misses a few games.

He has been decent in each of the few games he has played and 2 of them were against leinster and munster.

Re: Lions 2021

Most people would have had him in their expected squad. He’s rightly disappointed and emotional and was just very open and honest about how he is trying to deal with the disappointment. Nothing wrong with that. Whether people think he should have been picked or not I see nothing wrong with this inte...

Re: Ulster in the Challenge Cup

There are 2 trophies available to ulster in any season. To win one you have to be consistently better than leinster as well as beating them in a one off game, and in the other you again need to beat possibly leinster and the best of England and France. A bit of realism from the pundits and fans is ...

Re: Lions 2021

Henderson will know the value of starting the tour well this time around. Very difficult to make up for a poor game on such a short tour.

Plus he won’t have Rory best, Marler and Haskell taking him out for pints every night.
