    Jack McGrath has no luck


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,074 ✭✭✭ ionadnapokot


    McGrath off. looks like the wrist


  • Registered Users Posts: 9,167 ✭✭✭ Burkie1203


    Brilliant from Cooney


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,225 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Ulster fairly relentless here but sloppy in parts.

    Two break downs in a row in at the side but got away with it.

    Cooney really setting the tone.

    Big fan of Cooney. He doesnt have the best pass in the world but has real mettle. makes good decisions and marshals the pack .


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Tough baptism at this level for Rea so far, he needs to learn fast or he'll be lucky to make the 2nd half.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,341 ✭✭✭✭ mfceiling


    Started well enough. Addison is as smooth as silk. Hopefully he can get a run of games injury free.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,745 ✭✭✭ ongarite


    FFS, another injury blow.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,074 ✭✭✭ ionadnapokot


    has stockdale touched the ball?

    this is a messy game. &stupid pens


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Commentary is like ear bleach.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,074 ✭✭✭ ionadnapokot


    Heaslip is excellent on co-com. & terrible in the off the pitch stuff.
    its weird

    Ah Cooney....


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,225 ✭✭✭✭ Venjur


    Great determination there to march Bath up to their 5m.

    Back three look indecisive and have been caught a few times on foot of poor or slow decision making.

    Cooney should have slotted that kick but he's been brilliant for Ulster, running the show despite a few notable errors.

    Marty Moore putting himself about.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,074 ✭✭✭ ionadnapokot


    Cooney would want to wipe away that smirk lively, one of the worst kicks I've witnessed. Ulster fortunate to be in front at H/T.

    nearly as bad as Sextons v Wales in 2018

    Somebody I just find it very hard to listen to for some reason. Feels like he's too eager to fill gaps in between play and ends up stating the obvious or resorting to cliche with a forced delivery, similar to, though not as bad as Fitzgerald.

    Dont enjoy the dynamic of 3 commentators in general anyway, very hard to make it come across as natural. Reminds me of the terrible half time shows in the Nfl where there's 5 or 6 lads around a table each delivering their own sassy pitch.

    Any stream available?

    Fitzgerald is excruciating. Followed by D'Arcy, BOD and Shane Williams

    Heaslip offers a bit of insight at least.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,341 ✭✭✭✭ mfceiling


    Any stream available?

    Channel 4 and Virgin 1. Not sure of streams.


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Luke Marshall has been impeccable in defence so far.


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Ugh, replay is ugly viewing for Marshall.


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,220 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    Both teams have been terrible.

    Skill levels are shocking.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,070 ✭✭✭ Boscoirl


    That picture in picture is the saddest thing I have seen on BT

    An this is a channel that that simulates ticks in the studio


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,074 ✭✭✭ ionadnapokot


    Great Kick!
    & Henderson playing Scrum Half!


  • Registered Users Posts: 588 ✭✭✭ baas baa


    Cooney has stones in them situations, there are TH props who pass the ball better when on the run than Luke Marshall.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,865 ✭✭✭ clsmooth


    Jaysus Addison. He’s been good otherwise

    Shocking attempt at a tackle.
