Edit - We won against Connacht - they had it wrong on the IRFU website last evening but have changed it. That's two days with three wins out of four.

Academy 7s finished today- Ulster went well- they drew with the Ireland side. Pretty impressive stuff..

Leinster 0-17 Ulster, IRFU High Performance Centre
Ireland 28-0 Connacht, IRFU High Performance Centre
Ireland 40-5 Leinster, IRFU High Performance Centre
Munster 21-0 Ulster, IRFU High Performance Centre
Munster 5-38 Ireland, IRFU High Performance Centre

"Ulster were again hugely impressive on the third weekend of action in Dublin as Kieran Campbell‘s side, led by the experienced Greg Jones and boosted by the influential Aaron Sexton and Ireland Under-20 captain David McCann among others, produced some excellent rugby throughout."

David McCann, Azur Allison, Greg Jones, Jude Postlethwaite, Ben Carson, Conor McKee, Lewis Finlay, Bruce Houston, Conor Rankin, Aaron Sexton, Hayden Hyde, Ben Moxham.

These few weeks seem to have been excellent results. Are they as good as an know-nothing onlooker like me thinks?

Ulster A playing Munster at home on Sat Dec 12 4:30pm and away to Connacht on Fri Dec 18 1pm.

The Munster game in theory could be used as the 3rd game of Treadwell's ban.

Is Treadwell not suspended for three weeks and not three matches? :red:

Cardiff Blues used the loophole of using an A game to soak up a ban earlier in the season, so that Josh Turnbull who was banned till Nov 3rd, played v Ulster on Nov 2nd!

Ulster have 2 A games scheduled between the Toulouse and Gloucester games.

Treadwell is not free to play until midnight 19th December so he will miss both European matches. :red:

See my previous post where the Cardiff player played against Ulster before his ban was scheduled to be over due to the A game!

"The Player is free to play from midnight on Tuesday, November 3."

Cardiff Blues: M Morgan; A Summerhill, R Lee-Lo, W Halaholo, H Amos; J Evans, L Jones; C Domachowski, K Dacey (capt), D Arhip, J Ratti, R Thornton, J Turnbull, J Botham, W Boyde.

This article explains it well.

Good to see a bit of a spat here, it's been a while since there has been anything close to a BIG FIGHT BIG FIGHT !

The assumption has to be 3 weeks or 3 games whatever is the lesser of the two?

Just providing evidence of what our Welsh cousins did in a similar situation 😉, if that is considered lively this forum has got very quiet😂

I wonder whether Ulster will exploit this loophole or whether they will consider a cynical / professional use of the rules and decide it is not in the "spirit of the rules" etc

Personally I hope that Ulster don’t stoop to the Welsh level. Find it quite ironic after the comments about Irish teams cheating in the league which are so prevalent on Welsh sites
