Yeah. Seen kernohan come on for Cooney. Not good sign if we can’t get a 10 on the bench if Johnston was a late withdrawal. Strangely seen that when shahanananan came on he lined up at 10 outside of Cooney. Thought it would have been other way round.
Commentary was gash. Nobody noticed we didn’t have a 10. Hopefully no injury to Burns.

Think I saw Kernohan on the park so must have been a late call up instead of Bill?
Johnston pulled up in the warm up so wasnt on the bench. Kernohan was 24th man.

That was brilliant to watch. We tore them apart. In every facet bar the lineout our pack ate theirs alive.

We won't win many games so comfortably where our lineout is so crap, and that is both down to how crap they are but also how much our lads dug in there.

Agree totally, was a great game to watch. We have a solid battle hardened pack now, with arguably front row depth being our biggest weakness. The backline played really well both in attack and defence, we are set up for a real go at Clermont next week.

Munster overall probably were quite disappointing, wasn't really that clear what they were trying to achieve and they will have their work cut out.

Ref not really sure what to think, he missed a clear choking of Reidy, definitely missed a good bit of other stuff going on and on the whole thought Munster got the rub of the green.

Superb performance. Ulster teams just don't do that to Munster. Fair play Dan McFarland. I Thought the one small positive of Rory retiring might be our line out improving but the last month especially it has been absolutely shambolic. Beyond a joke. The one line out we won cleanly we scored from. Everything else was utter p!sh. Anyways no injuries for next week is great ... not expecting to win at all but lets give it a helluva lash.

Great result.

Commiserations to Shan.

Might we get something out of the game next week? Only if we can get the flamin lineout fixed.

We should have had a few scrum penalties. A few generous calls from the referee for resets.

Mattie Rea can take a bow. Didn't get man of the match but O'Mahony will be wearing Mattie Rea pyjamas tonight.

There is always an element of over familiarity in interpro lineouts, but it does emphasize a weakness.

Some of it was down to stupid calls.

No harm like but whoever was calling to the back of the lineout after we'd lost a few needs to have a word with themselves.

I’m taking some comfort from alcohol and the fact that Munster and the Westies are probably the best at disrupting lineout ball.

For a few matches recently our lineout had been very effective.

But anyway that was excellent stuff tonight. It had pretty much everything.

Delighted with tonight, the season so far and the direction UR are going in on and off the field at the moment.

The aggro of the pack is great to see and something I think Jack McGrath has conspicuously added to the mix. Big big fan of both EOS and particularly Tom O'Toole coming through.

As you say LL Munster could be on for a fairly disappointing season. Given the way Fla and Jones were dumped last year and with Larkham and Rowntree in situ I can't imagine van Graan has a huge amount of wiggle room if they underperform.

The ref was alright. A bit of Nigel about him perhaps. He wasn’t going to give a pen against Stockdale for that push whatever POM said to him. Reidy’s neck got in the way of the ball.

We’re top point scorers in the Pro 14 at the moment....
