No question we need to be beating the Blues at home.

Glasgow might go down to the Dragons at Rodney parade given how they've started which would be useful - but the Cheetahs may well beat the Westies. Which would mean they'll be troublesome to catch over the full season.

Need to win the home games. Once things settle down Glasgow and Leinster will probably occupy the top 2 spots. Given Scotland's early RWC exit, Glasgow may start seeing their 1st XV players return. Read on twitter that the Munster players in the Ireland squad will report back the week of their game v ourselves (week starting Monday Nov 4th).

Cheetahs have crazy schedule, just had 3 home games. Next home game is in February, next game in South Africa at the Kings is in January. Have 5 straight games in the NH and 8 of their next 10 games are in the NH. They finish off with 7 of last 8 games in South Africa.

Its gonna be real interesting to see how the Cheetahs go with RP directing traffic from 9.

If they have a back three that can chase and catch - then they have the tools to do very well.

Like to think we will win this handily enough, pretty decent team we have out.

Would have agreed with Lurgan Lad if I hadn’t seen that Mike Adamson is reffing the match with his usual style.

Ulster fortunate to be 17 up at halftime. Not playing at all impressively given the apparent strength of the team fielded. Looked in first 20 like it could be a big score. Then momentum shifted and only shocking Cardiff ineptitude stopped Cardiff scoring. Marshall's yellow card debatable.

I have the volume up on the S4C commentary which is in Welsh. That way I can hear the referee. There is nothing else of any value to me. :D

Classic Ulster lack of concentration gives away dodgy try. Adamson and Patterson combined joke. 17 7

Good partisan crowd! :D
thought Cardiff deserved their try just because of their good footwork, decent support and poor Ulster tackling. Forward pass or not.
