    No Carter or Coetzee for Ulster, the pack looks pretty underpowered.

    On the plus side Billy Burns is back at 10.

    Gloucester with Lloyd Evans at 10, also a chance to see Rees-Zammit in action.

    Never realised he’s only 19.

    Hopefully O’Connors can give us some/semi parity.

    I'd like to see that turnover by Gloucester again.


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


    Shocking defence there!

    Gloucester just look like making ground every attack

    Our back row getting destroyed already


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,218 ✭✭✭✭ bilston


    McCloskey fell off a tackle really badly there.


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


    That is rubbish defence.

    Gloucester really targeting the breakdown


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,218 ✭✭✭✭ bilston


    The Gloucester defence opened up like the red sea there for Burns. He has started really well.


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


    Nice work from burns. His initial wide pass set that try up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    Straight through the panama canal there.

    Gloucesters midfield defence little ropey

    Lovely from Lowry and good feet from McCloskey...shame about the lineout.


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


    Real arm wrestle on, really missing Henderson, Coetzee & Carter

    Going well here :rolleyes:


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,218 ✭✭✭✭ bilston


    Hmmmm...

    Did someone from Ulster pish in this ref's corn flakes this morning...


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,099 ✭✭✭ TRC10


    Qualification Hopes slipping away here


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    Just compare the lineouts... its not good enough for this level.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,039 ✭✭✭ UAEguy2020


    2 yellows and a penalty try all from yet another amateur lineout attempt on the half way line.

    To be fair, they had a prop throwing in with a 2nd row in the bin

    He wasnt in the bin when the penalty was conceded before the PT.

    The scary thing is I can barely tell the difference at lineout time...

    How was that down to a bad Ulster lineout?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 472 ✭✭ Kraftwerk


    Glad to see that given. Too often players tackle and drag grounded players into touch.


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


    Full strength Ulster would have a field day here.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,099 ✭✭✭ TRC10


    It must be said, Ulster have managed this 13 man period magnificently. Gloucester crowd are frustrated.


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,218 ✭✭✭✭ bilston


    So we won the double sin bin period 3-0


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,261 ✭✭✭✭ Clegg


    That's a shocker from Cooney

    Ulster screwed up at a lineout that lead to those 2 yellows and PT.

    Huh? The Ulster lineout had been fine before the sin binnings

    The lockdown can't come soon enough. Can't disappoint me if we don't play.
