    I'm getting teary eyed over Rory running out with his kids.

    The TV director is more interested in replays than the live action.

    I noticed that. Bellend.

    Some try!

    Circumstances aside, losing Jackson has been huge for Ulster, Burns just isn't at the same level.

    Not at Jackson's level but getting better and doing well now

    Hopefully Henderson is ok here

    Coetzee has been immense so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,090 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Clever lineout


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,407 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Have a bit of that.

    Ulster eating them up so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 933 ✭✭✭ Locke_Lamora


    Baloucoune is such a great defender in that sort of situation. I am fully prepared to campaign for him to be called up to Ireland in the same way Connacht fans did for Healy and O'Halloran

    Am I alone in thinking the ref was in a terrible position for the play where the Connacht hooker was held up? There was all sorts of infringement going on there, not sure why he was behind the ruck over the try line - rely on TMO if its grounding you're worrying about.

    Nonetheless some super defence by Ulster there, they're good for the 8 point lead so far.

    His positioning is quite unusual generally, often getting in the way.

    Connacht’s ruck protection has been very poor. Allowed some very basic turnovers.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,174 ✭✭✭ troyzer


    Looks like Bundee threw a punch.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,407 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Just a pen for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,145 ✭✭✭✭ Utopia Parkway


    Burns was ducking and turning. Just a pen I think.


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 49,407 CMod ✭✭✭✭ awec


    Is the sound messy for anyone else?


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,016 ✭✭✭ Bridge93


    I’d think yellow. No issue with a pen

    Sounds like there's another station using the same frequency sometimes right? Or a weird almost dubbing effect


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,090 ✭✭✭ OldRio


    Nothing wrong with that.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,230 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Just about barely a penalty at most.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,295 ✭✭✭ launish116


    Never a yellow, only a penalty. Dominant tackle on Burns as he was falling.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,861 ✭✭✭ Wegians89


    Feel it’s a harsh penalty at that


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,931 ✭✭✭✭ cson


    Penalty is about right there given the focus on player welfare, its certainly no Owen Farrell NFL attempt though.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,016 ✭✭✭ Bridge93


    Feel it’s unlucky but not necessarily harsh if that makes sense

    Pretend you're an Ulster player by deliberately fcuking up every single line out you receive.

    Agreed. The one eyed commentator is embarrassing suggesting the citing commissioner will be involved.

    Been a good watch this. Ulster playing well and in apparent control but Connacht look so dangerous on loose ball. Cartys passing has been brilliant
