Re: Ulster v Hairyqueens

Re-watched the game. BOD thinks that if a lineout isn't contested it should not matter if the throw is straight or not. BOD was a brilliant player, and he's generally a pretty astute commentator on the game. But he simply cannot disguise his anti Ulster bias. I don't know what the basis for this ma...

Re: Ulster v Hairyqueens

Ulster back row playing rip ball instead of tackling the ball carrier to ground and paid the price for playing a second row in the back row . Also in the second half the backs got caught defending to narrow leaving players exposed outside and paid the price Sent from my iPod touch using Tapatalk Eh...

This is clearly a signing to welcome as was Marty Moore. How they work out is another matter, time will tell.

Re: Jordi Murphy to Ulster

Jordi Murphy is a decent provincial level player who usually plays pretty consistently and manages to have the odd blinder. Far from outstanding. Something similar to our own Sean Reidy. I think he is lucky enough to have some Ireland caps. I suppose, overall, he will be a useful squad player, espec...

Re: Ulster v Dragoons

So why did Nelson play 10 last week Ostensibly he needed game time at 10 because Leafyfanny is off in January, so we can assume one of two things. 1) he played so magnificently that the man you think Ulster can’t do without :stir: was well pleased. :lol: 2) Bryn has acquired a real 10 Other explana...

Re: I suppose we have a game this week...

Ulster played quite well when they had the ball i n the proper end of the pitch . Problem Ulster seldom had the ball and seldom where they could actual use it . As I have stated earlier in the season O ‘Shea has made changes it the way he wants the Italians to play - it’s ugly but effective - if yo...

Re: Moore To Ulster

Rory Best is a great player, Henderson is a great player. Marty Moore is not a great player. Overweight and struggles to catch a ball. Saying that, I've always thought he had plenty of potential and should never have been allowed to leave the remit of the IRFU. Still young at 26/27 and does have so...

Re: Irish AI Squad

The surprise is Toners selection I thought Treadwell would have started with Toner on the Bench to strengthen the line out if it started to stutter. But 13 changes from last week shows Joe recognises 5 mins caps from the bench is no guarantee of International experience and fails to provide any bas...

Re: Irish AI Squad

A good win but the score line flatters Ireland. SA forwards were betrayed by a woeful SA backline little guile ,bad handling ,and it's hard to identify anything they did right. I have rated Conway ever since he played in the under 20's his problem was Zebo and Earls were the Munster wings and both ...

Re: Connacht v Munster Fri 27th October TG4

The red was deserved given the contact which was probably made worse by POMs slight deflection on carty. Munster would probably have won without the red I feel, but it made for a great last 20. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk Munster should have had the game won well in advance of the red card...

Re: Ulster v Leinster

Gonna have some team next up. Think Deysel will be rested and the Ireland squad members not available (cept Tredders and maybe Herring possibly). Gilly should be back next week. Deysel is Ok when in top form, but nothing special. Coetzee is great when fit but he is never fit ( he was actually much ...

Re: Munster 17/18

Good win by the Tornips in foul conditions. OK - Keatly missed a sitter (wind?) but nailed two from wide out and make some geat tactical kicks. Zebo is the best FB in Ireland. Conway showed tremendous acceleration for his try - took off like a scalded cat- and was also good in the air. An Ireland b...

Re: Ulster vs Wasps

Still not convinced. We had a purple patch with 2 tries in 3 minutes, but other than that we looked turgid with the ball in hand. Defence was mighty though, give credit for that. And Leilifano, the less said about his performance tonight the better. All in all, 4 pts and 0 to the opposition - we'd ...

Ludi never ever gives less than 100% ... On and off rhw field hes a true Ulsterman. I watched the game from the family stand end. He gave an absolute master class at 15. Outplayed waankpenny. He dives like a goalie at players legs and takes them down properly. Why do you call him waankpenny? Leigh ...
