In @ST_Sport - Alby Mathewson on his way to Ulster https://t.co/eOqEO0nmdH
The Munster fans were sorry to see him leave. Good player, is this a possibility or fake news?

Does not make up for Pienarr and is unnecessary. We have three good scrum-halves and two in the pipeline.
From the rolling glens of Antrim through the hills of Donegal we will stand and shout for Ulster as we win both scrum and maul from the lovely lakes of Fermanagh tae the shores of ould Lough Gall we will scream and shout for Ulster as we beat them one and all!

Well if Alby is a 1 yr signing and we hotshot of Shanahan and Stewart he can mentor the young guys coming through - especially when Cooney is away with Ireland.. harsh on Shanahan but he's not good enough to replace Cooney..

Cooney will likely be absent a lot more going forward, as he will be subject to irfu player management post summer tour, autumn internationals and 6 nations. We simply can’t plug that gap with what we have right now.

Matthewson would be ideal.

I think that Ulster have three promising 9’s coming through in Finlay, McKee and Doak and it will be interesting to see how they develop. I suspect that Ulster Rugby are well aware what is in the pipeline hence the reluctance to buy in a Journeyman 9.
IMO we have one and he’s a few years off yet. Doak is very talented and will benefit from Cooney and maybe another 9.

Travesty that ROD was overlooked.

Whilst I agree Doak could be a few years off yet I watched a 20 year old French out half rip Wales to pieces yesterday. Given Doak played Ulster A this season it's not beyond reason that he couldn't be our 2nd choice scrum half come the end of next season.

Signing Alby sounds far too good to be true. Has Dave Nuciwenkfeckbag died or something?

Wonder if there will be any more coming in.

I’m convinced there is at least one more back.

You “wondering” keeps the rest of us very interested!

Now....is the reference to “back” talking about playing position or someone returning....or both?

Oh.....could it be that we have re-signed Rob Dewey??? :roll: :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

One more back -- given the current crop of centres/ wings -- there is really only about 2 shortages -- full back and

Outhalf and fullback maybe .. but there are loads of young lads coming through the back three. We already have Faddes who is a bit of luxury. If it was a back coming back I'd hope for Lealifano- class act good for the team and as a mentor .. not that I see that happening, Can't think of anyone else

With Hume and Moore there don't see the need, plus there is Hyde playing with Ireland U20's.
