Thought Hendo was excellent but would gave the MOM to Best.

Hendo was a wrecking machine, Rory gets my vote...

But I agree that Francos contribution to the side is often overlooked and undervalued.

PJ played well, although he missed one pen to touch. It was a fairly solid performance all round although there were a few howlers that let Connacht back into it. Hendo was great at times as was Henry and Franco. Centres were solid and Ruan was his usual composed self. Rory was like a machine at the breakdown and the lineout went well so he gets my vote. Dan was quiet.

I went with Jackson - I thought the big difference was we that bit more clinical than them, and I thought a huge amount of that was to do with him.

Best and Henderson were excellent though. A lot of good performances in general.

Henderson without a doubt. VdeM and Best were also brill. Best performance this season. Hope they can emulate or even improve against our bogey team - Leinster. Glad Connacht got the LBP.
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

My vote goes to Rory - but with special mentions to Hendon, VDM , PJ and Ludo? In terms of the match overall serious credit must go to Henshaw, Healy and Muldoon. What a match!
Hope is not a strategy.

Franco is a grafter, the kind of solid totally reliable citizen that every team needs. Callum Black is another who just does his job effectively.

I awarded it to R.Best before Barnes blundered. Rory was the by a very considerable margin the best player on the pitch.

Franco very good as usual but nowhere close to RB.

That does not mean others did not produce worthy efforts. For example, Darren Cave showed that not only is he the best 13 at Ulster, he is also the best 12 and, by a country mile, "the best centre at Ulster".

Payne played well, may have a future at 15, it should certainly be looked at, he may have aptitude for it.

Hendo was goodish, some very good moments, some bordering on outstanding, but overall, I'd have given him a "could do better".

Chad, of course I forgive for his bad missed tackle. As Snipe says, it will be a long time before that happens again, & 80 minutes will have been of great benefit to him before he shows SOB how 7 should be played.

Nice to see Tommy finishing, he hasn't been great this season in my opinion but if you want a man who scores tries that should be scored, nobody better than Tommy at doing it. Great finish too for Gilly, keeping him ahead of the deadly Mr Rhys Webb, last seasons top try scorer n the Pro12 & someone Rum'n thinks (see 6Ns thread) ordinary & without experience. >EW

Nice play by the halves, both looking sharper than recently.

All that said, fair dues to Connacht, I believe Pat Lam to be amongst the best coaches in the league, Auckland eh, & we got Anscombe. :roll: I admire what Connacht have done this season & what they have built over the last few seasons but struggling to see how they will get 6th place with their run in but wish them all the hairy chest. At least 7th would give them a shout against the crap English & French 7th place teams. G'wan.
Support the team and coaching staff. Forget the rest,BUT NEVER MOVE ON.

FIRFU - FU'CK YOU ONE AND ALL, CAVING IN TO SPONSORS, SACKING THE INNOCENT FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE, SHAMEFUL BASTA'RDS. YOU'VE LOST MY SUPPORT & I HOPE MORE ULSTERMEN & WOMEN

As we've seen recently, Pat Lam is nobody's yes man and would not have had a look in while Humph was bit-of-the-walk at Ravenhill. He wouldn't take tellin!

When Joe goes to the All Blacks and Les takes over for Ireland, can we book Pat now for our gig?

At least the Westies have Weegies and Hairsprays at home. With a fair wind off the Atlantic you never know. They've overcome bigger obstacles at the Sportsground. G'wan indeed!
