Re: Injury Update

Henderson picked up a ‘significant’ knee injury. FFS. Wouldn’t worry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I’m not worried about Ireland, they will do well to win a Māori game, never mind a test match. I hope Henderson isn’t ruled out long term. Almost Every time he goes into Ireland camp he leaves in...

Re: U20s Summer Series

Well beaten by a bigger better side. Don't fancy their chances against the Saffers next week either. Don’t think it was that much to do with size. Although Ireland really struggled in the scrum. Ireland u20s are missing a few props though. French backs looked like the were going to make a line brea...

Re: U20s Summer Series

Crothers is a smart rugby player and McCormick is more than useful at hooker.

Mcnabney is u19 captain playing a year above himself. 6ft 4/6ft 5 backrower with his pace is rare enough in ulster rugby.

Postlewaithe is the top prospect from this batch, although not named in the squad.

Re: Stuart McCloskey

I’d course.

Nobody in their right mind can look at the league and European games and come to the conclusion that Aki and Frawley are better players.

Re: End of season depth chart

Back row remains our glaringly obvious weakness and I'd go as far to say we have the least depth of any Irish province. Big questions remain over Jordi's legs and we are an injury away from rea and Jones starting. We need mccann and reffel to hit the ground running next season and challenge for the...

Re: End of season depth chart

Flyhalf is the biggest problem yet. People forget that it was Burns’ very poor pass around 75minutes that gifted the stormers field possession and ulster never got out of their half for the rest of the match. I’m hoping Flannery hits the ground running and can get good Gametime off the bench next se...

Re: Stormers v Ulster Saturday June 11 2pm UK Time Premier Sports / RTE / URC TV / Super Sport

Agreed. Warwick has been very good this season but isn’t the answer. He should be used to inspire the next generation of Ulster forwards, his professionalism and attitude his top class and he is a key member of the Ulster 23. Clear first choice this season for me. The biggest problem Ulster have in...

Re: Player Farewell 2022

Helluva of grafter, was our Sean. He came here as a bit of a hopeful signing. His mate Raaymakers didn't hang around. He must have been the top tackler in the league for a season or two. Wishing him all the best. For a while when Timoney was starting out, Reidy was the only decent backrowers on Uls...

Wee Jamie will be off his nut. The fools in the video will be too stupid to notice.

BTW, you seem to have an obsession with wee Jamie Bryson. Numerous ...

Re: Nursing a semi

Were the Stormers at full strength when we played them? Genuine question as I don't know. They had a few changes between the team that beat us and the Edinburgh game at the weekend, but that may be down to new injuries and injury return. Remember Deon Fourie in their back row being a right pain in ...

Re: Ulster v Munster Friday June 3 7:35pm KO Premier Sports 2 / TG4 / URC TV / Supersport

Good to see a decent number of Munster supporters in the crowd but disappointing to see so many empty seats. Anyone know why ticket sales were poor for such an important game? I'm assuming the Jubilee weekend had an effect, people going to local events, or taking advantage of the long weekend. The ...
