    The Irish players really have turned into a bunch of veginas the last 18 months but getting put on your ass by Cheslin Kolbe a new low. No fight whatsoever, just roll over and accept the inevitable beating.

    Ulster don't even attempt to "block" runners chasing up box kicks leaving the catcher totally exposed. No idea of the dark arts.

    Yep compare Lowry getting smashed by two players a few minutes ago to Hugets take before the Dupont try. Irish rugby in general seems behind the 8 ball with regards to this.

    Lowry going to ground will be jackaled by anyone.

    Performance in the deck is masterclass by Toulouse Ulster not at the races

    Kolbe completely free catch when surrounded by white shirts.

    Yup. No tackler has to exert any effort to put him down. Allows them a comfortable release and opportunity to clamp over the ball if there's a sniff.

    To be fair to Lowry he's not afraid to get stuck in.

    Particularly when his support players are nowhere to be seen.

    Anyone going to ground will be jackalled by anyone, if the support isn't good enough. How would there be a difference when you're meant to release the ball immediately.

    Agreed, there is fight in him. Others should follow his lead


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,632 ✭✭✭ionadnapokot


    Look at the size of Tekori!
    & Mefau looks even bigger!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,377 ✭✭✭schmoo2k


    This is where reducing the number of subs will help balance the size of the players somewhat...

    WHERE ARE THE FORWARDS


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,763 ✭✭✭Utah_Saint


    Stockdale is fortunate Balacoune is injured. Lyttle and Balacoune will be first choice.

    He’s a warrior
    Huget targeting him. Typical of Barabas

    Sam Carter waste of NIQ spot.
    Wheres our georgian prop?
    Mcgrath has had a crap game.
    Stockdales had a mare

    Lowrys shone up well though.

    What was that kick about. Why do that?


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,632 ✭✭✭ionadnapokot


    Great finish

    If you at least take contact on your terms and power into the tackle, the tackler is not going to be in a position to poach. He'll be on the ground with you.

    In that instance, Lowry was just pushed to the deck. The tackler didn't have to commit any effort and had his body already in position for the steal.

    I meant that he hasn't the strength to get his body position right and turn to present the ball. Any opposition player will easily be strong enough to get over him and hold him.

    Judging by your name you'll be lucky to see a vagina in 2020.

    Cunningham needs to think about some of the recent signings.
    Carter has been a waste of time.

    Sam Carter really is atrocious.

    Obstruction at least twice in that move.

    Least of our worries

    Really impressed with Lowry. Hasn't let his head drop and looks to counter every time he gets the ball.

    Need to get him on "Chicken, broccoli and Rice" that got South Africa and Kolbe so jacked...

    His size is going to be a real problem at 10. Teams are just going to line him up over and over.

    Looks electric when he has the ball. Hopefully he can be accommodated somewhere.
