Re: Munster 2013- 2014

I'm sick brad pitt of Zebo. Sick at looking at the overhyped banker prancing around like a character out of GTA. If he's as good as he thinks he is then he should duck off the France and prove it. He won't be as mollycoddled over there. Spot on. Zebo has become powerful flashy. You have to have a b...

Re: Ulster V Leicester live.

Just watched the match again courtesy of Rooster. 4 points to make: 1. The commentators were fine. There was no pro Leicester bias. 2. We made too many handling errors, but we were trying to play a high tempo game 3. There was a clear forward pass for the DC non-try, but I could see no offside for ...

Re: The Leicester View

Re: Ulster vs Tigers Final score 22-16. That is certaintly a good result . To go to Ravenhill with so many injuries and get a point is a good result. It is probably between us and Montpellier for the pool now as I don't think Ulster will be able to live with us at WR. We just need to get a bonus po...

Re: Ulster V Leicester live.

For me, Cave's disallowed try is enough to ward off the modified use of the TMO; the pass called forward looked forward but I don't think rugby is richer for tries like that being ruled out for something a referee wasn't sure he'd seen. With Jackson's, there were a number of things - Jackson's slow...

Re: Ulster V Leicester live.

Not pretty rugby, but Ulster dogged it out in the end and earned a well-deserved four points The pros : The pack got a grip on things after being shunted in the set piece in the first half. Good performances from Muller, Best and the back row. Jackson had another blinder apart from a couple of minor...

Re: Ulster v Tiggers

Tigers will be under no illusions as to both:- how difficult this ground is to get a win how difficult it will be to qualify if we don't win tonite. I expect a huge cup tie with both teams going at it, both teams want it and both know how to win a game. Lets hope the best team on the night gets the...

Seems to be no official word on when the gates open Who cares .. we'll be in the pub at that stage >burp True, but Im thinking to do my 'warming up' at Ravers, always great to saok in the atmosphere at the first Heini game of the season. I know that many on here hate the phrase, but for me this is ...

Re: Big Hendo

If Stevie had the career length of Wallace it may have been close but yes certainly Wallace rules. Sadly though both had their share of injury woes, Stevie's style may have been his biggest opponent. Stevie's been unlucky with a few of his injuries, most notably his latest one, and few of them came...

Re: Big Hendo

Great thread with a lot of well thought-out analysis. Anscombe said a few weeks ago that he does not want ro rush things and that Henderson should be used sparingly/introduced gradually. With respect, I don't agree with that at all. Henderson is already the biggest (except for Fat Nick) and (in the ...

I will. Just joking. No offense intended and I hope none taken. Obviously not used to the style of this board yet. Cheers.

Nigel is a great ref, has great legs but an incredibly squeaky voice. He's like Minnie Mouse on helium.

Re: HAS THE GINGER PRINCE TURNED A CORNER?

Madigan is usually a more reliable kicker but I think he is far too greedy at times with the ball. This week PJ certainly was better all round. the last time they locked horns, Madigan came off much worse. And I agree, Madigan is a bit of a glory hunter/greedy but he does have a great talent. Most ...

Re: HAS THE GINGER PRINCE TURNED A CORNER?

Paddy's (sorry, I just can't call him the cringe-making "Ginger Prince", and I bet he doesn't much like it either) performanace against the Ospreys was put into perspective by those of Madigan and Keatley in today's Munster/Leinster game. The steady and underrated Keatley outplayed the more flash an...

Re: Positives and Negatives: Ulster V Ospreys

I'm a long time fan but a first time poster, so go aisy on me,wud yez. Olding's lack of bulk doers not matter. He punches way above his weight and tackles like a demon. Marshall is a great, hard-running centre who will do well. But Olding is ahead in speed, step, game reading and overall footballin...
