Moment of the match

Post by bangorboy » Sun Jan 13, 2019 8:55 am

Yes we had Stockdales try, Lowry’s tackle on Nakarawa and plenty of Addison magic, but for me the best meoment of the match was Shanners taking on Lauret. The wee man was giving up about four stone and a foot in height but he took him on, and that act of defiance summed up the attitude of the whole team. Plenty of times we have complained not about skills and ability of players, but the lack of fight in them ( see Diack, R for example ).

Please let it continue...

Good to see weeD laugh about it. For my money it was Finn’sfeckedup kick to the corner. I’m smiling now just thinking about it. Racing bloused up three or four really good scoring opportunities, but we’re not complaining.

Amazed at how fragile Russell is. I watched his implosion in the Calcutta Cup when the Jocks fancied themselves against the auld enemy, but he really fell to pieces once we (the crowd) got at him.

I called it. Doesn't like it up him.

I enjoyed the band playing 'everywhere we go' and the crowd chanting 'Ulster, Ulster, Ulster etc.'

Then 5 mins later 'everywhere we go...'

I don't remember the band at all, and that is my acid test for a great atmosphere.

I was only aware of them once early first half. Best atmos for a couple of years. Main stand even got to their feet on more than one occasion. Anybody know who rents the corporate box right at the Aquinas end? There's some serious w@nkers in there on big match days.

Any of the ref's close call decisions that went our way. So often we gurn about them going the other way, it's nice when we get the rub of the green.

Stockdale’s second try it was a crucial try at exactly the right time — it gave Ulster a défendable lead facing a chilly wind .

Most of the moments mentioned are cameos which achieved little towards the result— Stockdale’s try decided the match .

thats true Merv, always that box that has you turning round to see which gimp can't hold their drink now and then wishing they'd topple over the balcony to a slow and painful death.

It was, or at least used to be Kukri in some form. There's often been different local clubs from a variety of sports in it at different matches who Kukri provide kit or someone has a connection to and have done well.

Today's moment had to be El Matador Señor Stockdale putting May on his hoop in the last 10 mins.

A personal highlight for me was spotting Derek Griffiths on the other Tigers wing :thumleft:

Yes enjoyed that tremendously. Stocker's footwork was amazing. But so is his strength. There were several occasions in that game when he powered through opposition tackles. He really is a difficult man to bring down and almost always makes ground that other wings could not. I'd like to see Ulster using him off the wing running through the midfield, the way they did when he first appeared a couple of seasons ago, especially since he is so good at offloading.
