Yes, Cooney #1. Timoney #2 so far. Then a load of bang average imports.

Sure Cooney is half Scottish.An equal amount of Scots and Irish equals an Ulsterman .... sort of.

I’ve never had a shirt with a name on the back before.

And it’d be relatively cheap with only three letters….

I'd rather that money was spent on bringing Lyttle back if we're recruiting a winger.

Each to their own like but I’d prefer a player who was committed and dedicated to playing pro rugby.

I get what you're saying and I've no idea if he would come back, but I remember reading here that he was absolutely shafted with an insulting offer to stay.

Let’s sign them both.

In a couple of generations time we could have a talented young winger on the books called Ivor Lyttle-Kok.

So to summarise the rumours for next season:
(NB - i have absolutely no insider knowledge/sources, this is entirely from stuff i've read)

Potentially leaving:
Eric O'Sullivan - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

James French - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

Ben Griffin - development contract up

Greg McGrath - already left - https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/spor ... 45405.html

Alan O'Connor - potential retirement? viewtopic.php?t=7414&start=15255

Dave Ewers - rumours linking him to England - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

Greg Jones - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

Dave Shanahan - viewtopic.php?t=20179&start=1395

Billy Burns - seems to be all but confirmed - https://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/spor ... 45405.html

Jake Flannery - would make zero sense if Burns is leaving - https://twitter.com/moffettAG/status/17 ... 9262501965

Stuart McCloskey - Bayonne rumours - https://www.planetrugby.com/news/french ... ets-report

Luke Marshall - retirement? - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

Angus Curtis - confirmed retirement

Ben Carson - development contract up

Will Addison - rumours to Sale - https://www.rugbypass.com/news/ex-irela ... 20RPB1iXx4

Shea O'Brien - under contract till 2025 but barely utilised - https://www.the42.ie/ulster-head-coach-6306120-Feb2024/

Other players out of contract this season:
George Saunderson (Academy)
James McCormick (Development)
Marty Moore
Tom O'Toole
Matty Rea
Reuben Crothers (Development)
James Humphreys (Academy)
James Hume

If there are 11 going (as has been rumoured) my guess would be: O'Sullivan, French, Griffin, O'Connor, Ewers, Jones, Shanahan, Burns, Carson, Marshall, Addison.
