Lyttle is the best kicker in the squad.

:whistle: That's a bit harsh

I thought we robbed Zebre

3 times by ROB Herring,
8 times by ROB Lyttle
and once by ROB Balacoune

with a little bit of help from Nelson, Ludik and the ref.

Was disappointed for the ref all the same ... he was on a hattrick for penalty tries, but he bottled it.

Benetton v Embra next weekend too, so at least one of them loses ground. We need to capitalise with a good win at Dave Parade the next day.

Indeed. I would say both Benetton and Edinburgh have tougher run ins than us. They have no gimmys bar zebre for benetton, from here on and both could drop points. Scarlets are still well in the hunt with 6 games left all in Wales.

The poor old Zebre reserves were poor opposition.
In Balacoune and Lyttle, Ulster have a couple of wings with real pace, and pretty good footballing/defensive skills too.

What to make of that game--- Ulster had a big enough pack to win -- but lacked a half back combination to enable the backs to play as a unit. Some nice touches here and there by individual backs but they never seemed to get the act together.

The less said about the referee the better -- but he made some needless decisions -- three yellow cards -- why ? and the one player deserving time on the bench continued to played the complete game ? Not impressed at all !!!

Not much of a night out. A good, routine, expected, win over a poor side. I spent the second half of the second half feeling sorry Zebre, except one thug of course. As others have said, we look as well placed as anyone for a playoff place. At this stage of the season, a Heiny cup QF and a Pro 14 playoff is more than I would have expected at the start.
