    Great start

    That's going to rile up the crowd.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,308 ✭✭✭✭ prawnsambo


    Good stuff Ulster. Early score to get the scoreboard moving.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,308 ✭✭✭✭ prawnsambo


    I'm giving Addison the credit for throwing the ball at the Bath player before he got shoved into touch. :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Let off there for Ulster. That looked like a sitter.

    Stockdale caught out pretty bad there by the bounce

    Second time he's been caught by an unexpected bounce. His chip over the top bounced back over his head.

    Criminal.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,039 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    That needs to be looked at, but Coetzee probably should have held onto that


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,318 ✭✭✭ Dave_The_Sheep

    Absolutley, card coming.

    Yellow card and penalty sounds about right.


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,039 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Yeah that's fairly spot on, can't give a penalty try because you can't say for definite Coetzee would've gotten the pass away with Burns chasing him down from that side.

    TMO trying his hardest against the decision though to say Cooney changed his line


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    That's poor by Ulster....great opportunity blown.

    Ridiculous anyway. He's entitled to run any line he likes. You're not entitled to tackle a player off the ball, regardless. Meanwhile Ulster make a bollocks of the lineout and Bath are off the hook. :(

    Tom O'Toole off so early is a strange call if not injured.

    He was really slow getting up from an earlier tackle so I am not convinced it was tactical.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,308 ✭✭✭✭ prawnsambo


    Ulster being uncharacteristically sloppy here. Need to sharpen up when in possession.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,191 ✭✭✭ swiwi_


    Last couple of Ulster games I’ve been watching balacoune. Reckon that “suspect defence” call is wrong. Seems to defend fine to me so far. I’d say stockdale is more suspect tbh.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    Great start!


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,310 ✭✭✭✭ FrancieBrady


    Nice try against some awful bath decision making.

    McCloskey making try-scoring passes, you love to see it


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,039 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Whatever was said in the dressing room at half time needs to be framed and used again and again


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,045 ✭✭✭✭ vienne86


    This is more like the Ulster I was expecting. Coaches must have handed out a rollicking at half time.


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,308 ✭✭✭✭ prawnsambo


    This is not a good place to have a scrum when it's creaking as badly as Ulster's is right now. :(

    Edit: Free kick. :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,039 ✭✭✭✭ Squidgy Black


    Stockdale's had a few stinkers mixed with some good, would have liked to see a solid performance ahead of the six nations

    Addison is class. I think Ireland should play him and larmour in the XV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 56,310 ✭✭✭✭ FrancieBrady


    All Ulster's players having a good and bad day


  • Registered Users Posts: 356 ✭✭ conor678


    I think Stockdale should be rightly worried to start the 6 nations (along with some other lads). He's not been great this game or the last few when I have whatched Ulster this season


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,308 ✭✭✭✭ prawnsambo


    Ulster need to cut out the errors. From being in control and hunting the BP to being only 4 points ahead.
