Looks like Ulster will be bringing in a new tighthead after all, BJ Botha

You've got to get your first tackle in early, even if it's late.

If we get Botha, I will be immensely happy! He's an international prop and at 28 is still fairly young. As for Elsom, I'd love him to fill the 6jersey up here, but the main problem will be money (nothing new there then!!)

Now the big question is, were the dogs right and BBC have got information independent of the dogs, or have the BBC been reading the message board and have taken the info from what the dogs told some here, or are the whole damned lot barking mad and we have signed Anthony Foley, Denis Hickey and Reggie is our new tighthead for next year :scratch:

I am on record here saying I thought T Bowe was right to go given the retirement of DH and the inexperience of NoC that Ulster could be playing a forward based game for the next two years with NoC or Hallett kicking for position in the corners

we need another second row of size , maybe another prop and a long kicking full back
2B or not 2B that is the question ?

says in the belfast Telegraph that "Ulster are in the finial stages of completing the signing of World Cup winning star BJ BOTHA. He is set to be announced as Ulsters new recruitment next week and the first of Ulster's major signings. Ian Humphreys is also very close to signing"

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :D :D :D
