Again he's a tight head. You can never have enough. He'll do a job. You will only have to search for some Irish granny with a rugby playing son.
I have my own tv channel, what have you got?

I wouldn't hold out much hope for any of this bunch being renewed. Some jumping, others being pushed.

Louis Ludik has been a great signing for Ulster Rugby. He’s always given 100%. While it’s understandable that his time may be coming to an end, if that happens I for one will miss his commitment and contribution as an excellent squad member.

Agreed. McBurney still young enough but really hasn’t pushed on. Was much vaunted coming through & would be great if he could play himself into form but possibly the writings on the wall if nothing confirmed at this stage. Roberts still seems to be involved but possibly still re Stewart’s injury (?) but will be interesting to see what they do contract wise for the hooker lower pecking orders behind Herring & Andrew.

Looks like there is competition for Dwayne Peel. Scarlets apparently trying to poach him from under the nose of Cardiff. He has signed a contract, but as Ulster have experienced in the past, a signed contract is not a guarantee.

I think Roberts did as good a couple of cameos as any I've seen. He looked ready to rock.

Thought Hyde looked good for the u20s and could have been an option at 12. Obviously with the talent coming through there was going to be a bottleneck. Ulster must be backing Curtis to have a higher ceiling. Still see Moore as the longer term option at 13 over hume but he hasn't had many opportunities yet.

I see as long term, I can see Moore making the 12 jersey his own in 12 - 18 months. No reflection on McCloskey. Moore IS next level.

Stewart looks a bit special alright. Maybe big Stu will retire to the backrow...
