Re: Ulster v Connacht

I agree with Spence and Cave in the centre - it could be a good combination with Cave at 12.

Re: Ulster v Ospreys Live

Great result ....... and we could have won by more. But well done NOC for getting the pressure kick towards the end. I think we deserved the victory - but only just! Did anyone else think that the Ospreys play the breakdown like the All Blacks - bodies all over the place? Just shows the influence of...

This was my first look at D'arcy and I thought he was pretty good, but I think Jamie Smith (on last years performances) just shades it.

They will be good competition for each other.

I'm pleased it's not on TV. Our team is looking very inexperienced and Harlequins put 40 on Connacht :(

I suppose it depends on the team Harlequins put out.

Re: Bath match

That's a very strong team Bath are fielding and as it's their second pre-season game they should less rusty than Ulster.

It looks like Bath are out to put down a strong marker for the Heineken Cup games

This will be a big test for our team - it will be interesting to see how they respond.

Re: Bath match

Muller to Captain. Big pack and a young back line. Should be an interesting evening. New signing Johann Muller will captain Ulster this Friday night when they take on Bath at Ravenhill, KO 7.30pm...

Re: Wannenburg In - Rush Out - Confirmation

I think the fact they they know each other is a benefit rather than a concern and I can see BJ being a "big brother" figure by showing them round the province and helping them settle in. For all its faults, our province is generally a very friendly place and they should have no trouble settling in. ...

Watching his distribution and kicking skills yesterday, the though of a Pienaar, iHumph Wallace axis makes get a weeee bit excited. If our forwards front up and we get another BIG ball carrier in the back row we could, we could, be a very exciting proposition next year. As my cousin in Tokyo says "...

Re: Team for B&I Cup semi

That's a handy looking back line.

Not sure about the forwards, although the front row looks strong.

Do we know if this will be shown on TV anywhere?

Re: Ireland v Scotland

O'Brien won't be taking any part in the game against Scotland as he broke his leg a few weeks ago. If Wallace can't play no doubt Jennings will come in as openside flanker. I'm not sure who would be next in the pecking order for bench cover. Kidney has used Donnacha Ryan as a flanker before - so he ...
