    Preview

    It's day 4339 post-Brennangate and Ulster travel to Scarlets in their third Heineken Cup fixture of the season, naming what is probably the strongest lineup they have named all year. Will Addison returns to the centre after his November exploits, Henderson and Treadwell make up the engine room. Stockdale and Speight will be dangerous on the wings.

    Scarlets look alright but I don't really care about them.

    Prediction
    Ulster by a score. Quietly confident we'll get this job done.

    Hidalgo-Clyne onto the bench for them

    That's borderline for me. He tried to use both hands.

    Sexy grubber from Addisson. He's utter class.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    STOCKDALE IS A BEAST. TRY!


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Addison is also the man.


  • Registered Users Posts: 45,433 ✭✭✭✭ thomond2006


    Oh very nice!

    Lovely grubber but thought he should have moved it before that.

    Classy try. Stockdale with a powerful finish but they almost made a mess of it by not holding their lines with the overlap. Stockdale should have been taken down.

    Nice from Addison but bad miss from Scarlets on him.

    Incredible strength from Henderson.

    That's the second hold up turnover for Henderson


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,686 ✭✭✭ corny


    Two lads trying to get to ball to ground. Henderson nonchalantly looking at the ref. Brilliant.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Addison is great to watch. Burns deserves credit for actually taking that offload though which was not exactly sympathetic. Ulster are going to go from everywhere, it seems. They want a BP.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 15,238 Diabhal Beag


    I know Scarlets are fairly ****e this season so far but Ulster have been really good so far. That Hendo defense was immense.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    That was a huge scrum from Moore.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    We’re actually playing well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Scarlets are giving away a ridiculous amount of penalties


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Eh, on first viewing....if Cipriani was a red card, Reidy could be in trouble. Haven't seen a replay though.

    Replay....could be in trouble here.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,355 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Ouch.

    This ref is very good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,026 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    The chants of "off, off, off" are pathetic.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    Thought he was lucky to get away without a yellow. Happy enough with the decision on a personal level but calls into question the consistency yet again.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,686 ✭✭✭ corny


    Farcical.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,305 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep


    The chants of "off, off, off" are pathetic.

    You get that everywhere.

    On the tackle, quite lucky to get away without a yellow there given some of the cards we've seen.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,224 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Ulster have been in control and had Scarlets under a lot of pressure and coughing up penalties.

    That's a poor score to concede against the flow of play and a pressure release valve for Scarlets.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,564 ✭✭✭✭ Buer


    That was a fantastic read from Speight not to bite in and trust the cover inside to get across before forcing the penalty.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,224 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Speight > Piatau


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,224 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Massive error from Patchel.
