Unfortunately, "thanks to Bank of Ireland".
Wouldn't watch it if it was in my front garden.

With Marcus Rea playing thats probably best for the weegies, he's the reason they never bothered with upgrading to sliced bread in Glarryford.

Big hopes for this kid.

With Billy as captain, are we officially the billy boys :duck:

Good second half. Ulster poor in the first half. Lowry much better at 10 than Burns.

First 30 mins or so were very ropey. Handling errors all over the place and defence far too narrow. Much better last 50 mins. Carter looks like a great carrier. Brilliant try from Graham Curtis. Agree with Damo, Burns just doesn't create much at fly half.

Thought replacement of Faddes by Luke Marshall was the key to the back line improvement in the second half both in attack and defence. Thought Hume did a good job at12 but Glasgow were lucky that McCloskey wasn’t there or it could have been 70 or 80. Prepared to see how Faddes settles in with new team and Pro 14 rugby but on today’s performance Marshall the clear winner.

Yeah Faddes was poor. Couldn't tackle to save himself.

Girloy looked feck after 10mins. That's what a year out does.

I thought Gilroy had to work quite hard for his try just before half time. I agree that he looked a little stale but he showed his experience the way he took that try.

Impressed with Angus Curtis as well. Him and Hume looked good.

Agreed. Marshall was a big improvement.

Rea had an alright enough game now with one very good turnover. I do wonder who'll end up the pick of the bunch between himself, McCann and Allison. Right now despite how impressive Rea's debut was I'd have McCann up front.

He is a natural winger though.
