Some great work has been done on the lineout.

If John Andrew isn’t the player of the season so far, then he’s certainly the most improved one.
100%. I trust his lineout throws more than Herring's.

He should also get an award for having great hair.
Its a solid hair/beard combo you don't see enough of..

We could have a thread for Andrew's and Jordis hair.

Bradley's barnett takes it to a whole different level.

It says something about the current strength in depth in hairstyles that Wee Mads hasn't even got a mention :lol: :blueafro:

Follicly speaking, Rory was holding the team back.

Bradley’s first throw was like a missile, loving his enthusiasm.

Does anybody know if Brad is Irish qualified? Rainey have had a fair few South Africans over the last few seasons and some have been over on British passports.

His haircut qualifies him to play for Ireland c. 1985

Lets not forget diddies seems to have lost some ballast of a few years ago and was against a good tighthead with a renowned scrummaging lock behind him. Propping is the one position where u can get easily exposed if u come up against the wrong opponent, be it in height or technique. He gets a pass on this occasion and can still offer something to ulster going forward if he gets an injury free run.

It's a touch ironic that the ''good tighthead'' who gave the Ulster frontrow so much trouble was not deemed good enough for a place in the Ulster Academy when he first came to Ireland from Australia in and around 2010/2011. Indeed if I remember correctly Finlay Bealham was ''starring'' for Belfast Harlequins 2's at that time. The Connacht Academy staff obviously saw some potential in him and their faith has been well and truly rewarded . Well done to both parties !! >clapping
