Re: Marcell Speculation

Coetzee is a relatively injury prone player, something part and parcel of the way he plays the game. If he continues to play hard and with his body on the line he will leave with well wishes. If he starts to conserve himself then feckim I think we've seen enough this season to suggest Marcell isn't...

Re: Pro 12 20/21

Fantastic performance from Connacht. Jack Carty with an incredible performance from out half.

Re: Cooney rumours

Looking at the type of scrum half John Cooney is, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if a French side came in for him.

Re: Connacht v ULSTER MoTM?

Back row was outstanding. Greg Jones was my choice, but I can't really argue with Jordi Murphy. Half backs also managed the game very well.

Re: drop goals

It used to be a thing in Irish rugby. ROG was the king. Sexton in 2018 against France was one of the best in recent memory. Could be a stats thing where someone has looked at the data and percentage wise they're not worth it so much. There's a fella on twatter called Brendon Shields who will be loo...

Re: drop goals

I think Ulster's last drop goal was Paddy Jackson against Exeter in 2016. Happy to be corrected.

Re: Ulster v Scarlets Sunday 7:35pm

In real time Treadwell's card was never red. I do think slow mo gives a false perspective on these things and doesn't really give a true perspective on players' natural reaction times or any real indication of intent in an incident that was essentially a split second event. Agree, I'd actually miss...

Re: ULSTER MOTM vs Scarlets

Thought Eric O'Sullivan was very good in the loose tonight. Recovered well after being put on his rear end by Sione Kalamafoni early on. Reidy again very good.

Re: Ulster v Scarlets Sunday 7:35pm

Ulster played their get out of jail free card tonight. Bar the yellow, Treadwell was very good tonight but why the TMO encouraged the ref to reduce the sanction is beyond me. Wasn't malicious or anything but it's a clear red card going by the high tackle framework. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapata...

Re: Ulster v Scarlets Sunday 7:35pm

Another game Ulster should be winning if they're to stake a claim for the title this season.

Re: Toulouse v Ulster Heineken QF

Wish I shared Ugo's optimism but I can't look past that Toulouse side. Will be a very long afternoon if we're beaten up front.

Re: The run in

Wouldn't rest Stockdale. He'll want to make amends so from the first set piece give him a one on one with his opposite winger. Beats most players one on one so should act as a confidence builder. Though he doesn't strike me as someone who loses confidence easily. Sent from my SM-A520F using Tapatalk

Re: Scarlets vs Ulster MOTM

Henderson has come back after the 2017 Lions tour a different beast. Ulster are so much better when he's on the pitch.

Re: Marcell Coetzee

The guys who turn themselves into monsters always break and often as not it's joint issues. Too much muscle mass and power for the joints and supporting structures.

Think the band could learn how to play Basket Case by Green Day before the playoff v Ospreys?
